The Association of Prosecuting Attorneys (APA) invites you to join this month’s Final Friday’s webinar presentation, “Planning & Implementing An Offender-Focused Domestic Violence Strategy, " on Friday, August 26 from 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. ET.
During this free webinar, Marty Sumner, Chief of Police (Retired) of the High Point Police Department, discusses a promising focused deterrence strategy aimed at perpetrators of domestic violence. Capitalizing on lessons learned from his focused deterrence approach to breaking up open-air drug markets, Chief Sumner will describe what the initiative involves, how it was developed and implemented, and how results demonstrate a significant reduction in interpersonal violence-related homicides, lower recidivism rates and arrests for offenders, harm reduction for victims, and fewer repeat calls for service.
Moderated by APA’s Community Prosecution & Violent Crime Division Director Robert Hood, this webinar is a great learning opportunity for prosecutors, law enforcement officers, and other criminal justice system professionals who are seeking a more effective and complete domestic violence response.
