07/06/2016 - Parenting in the Context of Coercive Control

When: 07/06/2016 , 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM
WHAT: Web Conference / Webinar
WHERE:
INFORMATION: Recent years have seen a growing awareness that parenting in the context of domestic violence does not look the same in all families or under all circumstances – and that inattention to these variations can undermine effective parenting arrangements following separation. Family court practice must account for the myriad ways in which parenting in the context of domestic violence is enacted and experienced by individual people, including children and their separating parents. This session will offer guidance on identifying, understanding and accounting for the effects of coercive control on post-separation parenting and co-parenting.

07/12/2016 - Digital Evidence: Successfully identifying and acquiring electronic evidence to combat the CSI effect

When: 07/12/2016 , 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM
WHAT: Web Conference / Webinar
WHERE:
INFORMATION: Sex Crimes investigations have changed significantly in recent years. Some of the positive changes we see are a result of a better understanding of the impact of trauma on sexual assault victims and how to incorporate that knowledge into Department policies, procedures and protocols. However, another aspect to improving investigations and prosecutions is educating first responders and investigators about the complexity of these investigations and what steps can be taken to improve case outcomes. Technology changes extremely quickly and law enforcement faces significant challenges to keep up. With the glamorization of policing in Hollywood, law enforcement is battling to address the CSI effect infiltrating our courtrooms. Given the common delays in reporting crimes of sexual assault and other forms of gender-based violence, traditional forms of corroboration such as medical and physical evidence may be limited or non-existent in some cases. Law enforcement must be open to other types of evidence that can be used to support their investigations. For example, electronic evidence is an avenue that law enforcement can often successfully utilize in both stranger and non-stranger investigations. Tapping into the digital life of the offender; crafting search warrants for cell phones, computers, tablets, social media and conducting pre-text (one party consent) communications are just a few of the ways to successfully combat the CSI effect. This presentation will include examples of sanitized search warrants used in actual cases to advance an investigation.

07/13/2016 - Building LGBTQ Responses Within the Austin, Texas Police Department

When: 07/13/2016 , 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM
WHAT: Web Conference / Webinar
WHERE:
INFORMATION: Law enforcement response to Intimate partner violence and sexual assault within LGBTQ communities is often unsatisfactory. Many LGBTQ organizations encourage more effective practices or, in worst case scenarios, advise LGBTQ people to avoid contact with the criminal legal system because of a lack of trust and previous experience of abuse and poor outcomes. However, some cities work hard to build trust through relationships, positive practice and policy. This webinar with Austin PD’s Detective Michael Crumrine (and Senior Officer Greg Abbink) highlights how change was built from within the police, and how trusting relationships can create positive outcomes for LGBTQ communities.

07/26/2016 - Female Veterans in the Criminal Justice System

When: 07/26/2016 , 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM
WHAT: Web Conference / Webinar
WHERE:
INFORMATION: As criminal diversionary programs for justice-involved veterans continue to be implemented across our country, more attention is being directed towards female veterans in the criminal justice system. Though research is limited in this area, existing studies have female veterans reporting more sexual trauma and more diagnoses of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) with more severe symptoms than their male counterparts. With the percentage of women who make-up the military continuing to increase and the growth in women’s incarceration, focusing on issues for female veterans is critically important in the coming years. This webinar will: examine what research tells us about female justice-involved veterans and where future research is focusing; address healthcare needs and what treatment and services are available and being provided through the Veterans Health Administration, and; provide a personal perspective from one female veteran who mentors others in a Veterans Treatment Court.
