Join fellow law enforcement personnel, prosecutors, victim advocates, judges, crisis workers, criminalists, crime scene investigators, physicians, nurses, forensic examiners, and EMS personnel for this cutting-edge conference. We will focus on a broad array of emerging forensic practices, including sexual assault, interpersonal violence, human trafficking, ballistics, strangulation, and child and elder abuse in both an urban and rural environment.This year’sconference 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 health care settings, and in the court room. Since violence is a health care crisis, we will focus on approaching forensic issues in a collaborative, coordinated, compassionate, competent, caring, victim-centered process.For more information click here.
