The investigation of sexual violence requires the very best from our criminal justice system. The individuals who commit these crimes, particularly those of the most violent nature, must be identified, captured, and brought to justice before they assault again. The investigation of these crimes, however, is remarkably complex and requires extensive cooperation and active communication across disciplines.This two-hour Policy and Practices Forum will convene experienced and knowledgeable subject matter experts in various fields contributing to the investigation and processing of cases involving sexual violence. The presenters, whose experience spans decades, will discuss the complex relationship between law enforcement, science, medicine, and the judicial system. As they will explain, innovative jurisdictional practices and scientific research producing valuable solutions and insight can empower our criminal justice system to better respond to acts committed by sexual predators. The result of these enhanced approaches is the better collection of evidence, faster laboratory testing, improved case management, and more reliable prosecution of offenders.
Designed for public agency leaders responsible for developing and implementing policy and practice, this week-long program uses a multisystem, multidisciplinary approach, focusing on efforts that benefit youth involved in more than one system of care.
The Certificate Program is a weeklong program of intensive study for public agency leaders responsible for policy/practice development and implementation in their jurisdictions. The program utilizes a multi-systems and multi-disciplinary approach in focusing on policies, programs and practices that relate to children and youth who are known across systems of care, particularly juvenile justice and child welfare; also known as “crossover youth.”
The purpose of the Certificate Program for Public Sector Leaders is to bring together current and future leaders in public agencies to increase their knowledge about multi-system reform efforts related to crossover youth, improve the operation of their organizations in serving this population, provide an opportunity for the development of collaborative leadership skills, and create a mutually supportive network of individuals across the country committed to systems reform.
