TTA Catalog List

BJA NTTAC's online TTA Catalog is a feature for BJA's providers to market upcoming webinars, training opportunities, and technical assistance to the justice community based on their needs and locations. The BJA NTTAC team also shares conferences, trainings, and events from across the field that may be of interest to the justice community. Users are able to search by various filters (e.g., event type, date range, program area, keyword, location) in order to find events that meet their needs. The TTA "Catalog" tab displays results in a table view. The "Month", "Week", "Day", and "Year" tabs display events in calendar views. The "Upcoming" tab lists all upcoming events while the "Previous" tab lists all previous events.

In addition to events, the TTA Catalog allows users to browse or search through BJA's list of BJA TTA grantees. Use the "TTA Providers" tab to search for BJA TTA grantees by various filters (e.g., program area, keyword, criminal justice professional experience). The CSV button at the bottom left corner of the page will export results into a .csv file (similar to Excel).

This course is for officers, investigators, and analysts who encounter cell phone evidence that includes information external to the phone. Class concepts include instruction on how to request, read, and analyze call detail records from cellular providers, as well as how to plot cellular site locations to determine the approximate position of a suspect during a given period. No special hardware or software is required. However, this course focuses heavily on analysis; as such, a strong working knowledge of Microsoft Excel is highly recommended. Students are provided with a free copy of the National White Collar Crime Center's (NW3C) PerpHound tool, which assists in the plotting of call detail record locations.

In criminal justice, a “sentinel event” is a bad outcome that might include a death in custody, routine police encounter that escalates to violence, mishandling of evidence, wrongful conviction, or “near miss,” in which a negative event is narrowly avoided. Too often, the criminal justice system fails to learn from these bad outcomes. Drawing inspiration from aviation, medicine, and other high-risk fields, the Sentinel Events Initiative (SEI) takes an alternative approach.

Substance use is a challenging issue facing domestic violence survivors and the programs that serve them. The national opioid epidemic has intensified the problem. But progress is being made. We are identifying promising approaches and building community capacity to address the complex needs of survivors. Recognition of the impact of trauma on survivors’ use of substances as well as the role of substance use-related coercion by perpetrators has led to more integrated approaches.

This course provides the technical and legal information prosecutors need to see cases involving digital evidence through the entire criminal justice process, from seizure and extraction to admissibility to verdict. Topics include digital evidence commonly seized during the execution of a search warrant, issues specific to mobile phones, digital evidence stored remotely ("in the cloud"), and the processes investigators use to obtain this evidence, such as the interrogation of digital devices. There is a strong focus on case law, ethics, and other legal issues surrounding the collection and custody of digital evidence, as well as its use at trial. The course also examines new legislation like the CLOUD Act, which is reforming the digital evidence landscape just as rapidly as the ever-changing case law.

According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics’ 2016 report, people with disabilities were more than three times more likely to experience violent crime than people without disabilities from 2010 to 2014. At the same time, only 13 percent of violent crime victims with disabilities received assistance from non-police victim services agencies. The recent increases in state Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) victim assistance grants create a unique opportunity to increase the number of crime victims with disabilities who access victim services.

Elder abuse is a growing issue faced by older adults, and the effects of abuse can negatively impact the physical health, mental well-being, and financial stability of victims. The challenges of elder abuse prevention, detection, and litigation are heightened for older adults who are less connected to resources. Older adults who are isolated, either situationally or geographically, often have challenges accessing the help they need to prevent against and seek help following elder abuse.

Many criminal investigators and analysts have heard of virtual private networks, proxies, and Tor. But, most would not feel comfortable conducting an investigation in which one of these tools was deployed. Similarly, both the Deepnet and Darknet are widely discussed but often not understood. At the same time, criminal investigators and analysts increasingly are required to conduct investigations and collect criminal intelligence information in these spaces or when these tools are being used.
