The world has changed, and ways of life have been put on hold. These are truly trying and difficult times for so many people. Tribal domestic violence advocates are struggling to find their footing and respond as best they can under the circumstances, given the lack of resources and tribal infrastructures as well as an increase in domestic violence. Indigenous people and Tribal Nations experience multiple levels of trauma, including Historical Trauma. All this contributes to the response to the current pandemic.
Attendees will hear from the California Department of Justice, California Tribal Families Coalition, and California Department of Social Services. This conference will provide Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) litigation and legislation updates and also take an in-depth look at different Tribes’ organizational approaches and how they are developing their infrastructure.
In the past two months, prosecutors' offices and court systems across the nation have seen their daily work to maintain constitutional justice uprooted, altered, and halted in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Recently, in response to George Floyd’s death, the criminal justice system also began facing calls for expanded police accountability. The role of the prosecutor is changing rapidly and the steps that prosecutors take in the upcoming months could impact the justice system for years to come.
Join the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) for their webinar, Lifting Up Voices: Law Enforcement WEAAD Celebration. During World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD), OVC wants to take this opportunity to celebrate America’s law enforcement officers. Federal agencies will be joined by Officer Steven McGhee with the Paradise Valley Police Department (Arizona) in lifting up the voices of law enforcement by recognizing and commending their tireless work in combating elder abuse throughout our country and continuing to serve as first responders during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The recent rise in the illicit trade of highly toxic synthetic drugs such as fentanyl has introduced a new set of potential health hazards to the forensic laboratory. Proper management of this employee health risk can be extremely challenging considering that there are currently no established regulatory guidelines and few published studies on forensic laboratory drug exposures.
This webinar will highlight the experiences, efforts, and needs of first responder agencies relative to exposure to traumatic stressors specific to the opioid crisis.
Using information gathered from interviews with mid- to high-level supervisors from several local law enforcement agencies, as well as fire department and emergency medical services staff, speakers will discuss insights into the awareness of this work’s impact on first responders, the measures agencies have taken to minimize negative effects on staff, and products or tools needed to advance these efforts.
This virtual meeting will provide an overview of the current statutory framework for community supervision and prison release that enables a rapid response to COVID-19 and highlight policies of concern to states during the pandemic. Attendees will also hear from practitioners about how policy is playing out in the justice system and have an opportunity to ask questions.
*This virtual meeting is made possible through the generous support of The Pew Charitable Trusts’ public safety performance project.
Family Justice Centers provide a “one-stop shop” for victims of family violence (intimate partner violence, sexual assault, and elder abuse). These co-located, multidisciplinary service centers reduce the number of places a victim must go to receive services following the crime. Services include, but are not limited to, assistance with protective orders, legal services, medical, counseling, safety planning, and more. This session will allow the audience to inquire about innovative practices within the Family Justice Center model.
Many enterprises have created Global Security Operations Centers (GSOCs) as part of their overall security strategy and operations. One of the biggest challenges security executives face is maximizing the value of their investment in their GSOC and the staff operating it. Another major challenge is keeping the GSOC staff motivated. Bringing intelligence feeds into the GSOC and engaging the GSOC staff in analysis and reporting of actionable intelligence fulfills both voids. Two senior security executives will present case studies on how they brought intelligence feeds and analysis into their GSOCs and the lessons they learned along the way.
This webinar is intended for LAW ENFORCEMENT personnel: those who are directly attached to or work in support of a law enforcement agency. Please register using your agency-issued email.
