Indian Country Strangulation and Suffocation Seminar, June 6-9, 2017
The Department of Justice's National Indian Country Training Initiative (NICTI), together with the Training Institute on Strangulation Prevention, is holding an Indian Country Strangulation and Suffocation Seminar on June 6-9, 2017, at the National Advocacy Center (NAC). Strangulation is a lethal form of violence and is common in domestic violence and sexual assault cases. This three and one-half day course is designed for experienced federal and tribal multi-disciplinary professionals (prosecutors, law enforcement officers, advocates, medical professionals) who work domestic violence and sexual assault cases in Indian Country. This course will provide an in-depth examination of the mechanics of strangulation and suffocation from a medical, legal, law enforcement and advocacy perspective.
Participants are encouraged to register as a team; for example, a prosecutor and investigator or a prosecutor and a medical provider may register as a team. Individual registrations will also be considered. Training Officers/SACs/SSRAs are invited to nominate individuals from their division or department who would benefit from this training opportunity.
The Department of Justice will cover all travel related expenses for those students accepted into the class. There is no tuition charge. For additional information, contact Leslie A. Hagen, National Indian Country Training Coordinator, U.S. Department of Justice, Leslie.Hagen3@usdoj.gov.
