NCJA Webinar - Adult Typologies

Sexual violence remains a serious social problem with devastating consequences. The challenge of "making society safer" not only includes the need for resources, but also requires a comprehensive understanding of accurate offense patterns and risk. This knowledge may be used to devise offense typologies, or classification systems, that will inform decisions regarding investigation, sentencing, treatment, and supervision.

Title IX Live Chat

If you attended OVC's two recent Title IX webinars, "Safety Planning With Campus Sexual Violence Victims" and "Legal Representation for Victims of Campus Sexual Assault," we invite you to attend our live chat session in August.

Responding to the Misuse and Abuse of Social Media in Criminal Cases
