This conference will help both new and experienced CCR teams improve their practices in identifying, investigating, documenting, and prosecuting cases that involve strangulation, stalking, abuse of technology, and firearms.
As a result of this conference, attendees be better able to:
- Analyze the reasons why strangulation, stalking, the abuse of technology and firearms raise risk and danger to victims of intimate partner violence (IPV) and sexual violence;
- Tailor specific responses to address both victim safety and offender accountability in potentially lethal cases;
- Investigate and prosecute offenders who strangle, stalk, abuse technology and firearms to promote accountability;
- Collect and preserve evidence of strangulation, stalking, technology abuse, and the presence of firearms;
- Draft detailed written reports and improve prosecution outcomes;
- Empower victims through sound trauma-informed investigations and prosecutions of IPV and sexual violence;
- Continue to enhance existing partnerships to strengthen your jurisdiction’s response to dangerous offenders;
- Design community-specific action plans that can help promote changes to current practices in your community to hold offenders accountable and centralize victim safety.
