Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Child and Elder Abuse...From Scene to Courtroom

Join fellow law enforcement personnel, prosecutors, nurses, victim advocates, judges, rape crisis workers, criminalists, crime scene investigators, physicians, military criminal justice and healthcare providers, forensic examiners, and EMS personnel for this cutting edge conference. We will focus on a broad array of emerging forensic practices, in sexual assault, interpersonal violence, human traffi cking, child and elder abuse in both an urban and rural environment.

This conference is designed to provide a multidisciplinary interactive and joint educational opportunity regarding promising practices when working with victims of violence. Topics will include working with multidisciplinary teams and learning to consider all of the forensic implications on the street, in healthcare settings, and in the court room. Since violence is a health care crisis, we will focus on approaching forensic issues in a caring, collaborative, coordinated, compassionate, competent, and victim-centered process.
