Law enforcement officers frequently come in contact with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) but often do not receive specialized training on how to identify and interact with people with I/DD. The more knowledge officers have on this topic, the more successful they can be when identifying the disability and communicating with people with I/DD. This webinar provides 10 practical tips officers can use to effectively serve this population.
People with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) are overrepresented in every part of the criminal justice system, including as victims and suspects or defendants. Prosecutors, who may encounter individuals with I/DD in a variety of ways, do not always have a full understanding of these types of disabilities or their potential impact on resolving cases. This webinar will provide an overview of I/DD, prosecutors’ legal obligations when interacting with the disability community, and concrete strategies to effectively serve this population using real-life case scenarios.

Increased attention has been given to police officer exposure to traumatic events as well as their prolonged involvement in stressful situations, environments, and working conditions. High stress can have precipitous negative effects on an individual’s mental health — including the onset of mental illnesses such as post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and/or anxiety. Moreover, research conducted in other fields of employment have shown that stress and stress-related disorders can cause problems with concentration, memory, and mood, which impacts workplace performance.
Health care is one of the fastest-growing employment sectors in the country, with the demand for qualified workers greatly exceeding supply in many areas. But people who have criminal records are often unable to enter or advance within this relatively high-paying sector due to a complex web of legal barriers that make jobs and licenses difficult or impossible to obtain.
