Webinar: How Law Enforcement Leaders Can Build a Trauma Informed Response Culture at Their Agency

August 26 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am UTC+0
Free

Progressive law enforcement agencies are changing the way they investigate sexual assault. Based on neuroscience research into trauma’s effect on the brain, police organizations have begun to adapt their perspectives on rape victims’ behavior and memory following an attack. Are these same agencies ensuring their policies and procedures maintain these changes? Are police executives committed to transforming the culture of their agency? Has the overall culture changed, or will gender biases creep back in, negating the progress they have made? Are the positive changes sustainable?

Our police organization adapted trauma informed practices in 2016. We have been committed to these improvements; however, from top to bottom, we consistently see the “old ways of thinking” and gender bias try to reinsert themselves. This webinar will provide concrete answers to these questions and describe initiatives we have used to sustain our progress. It takes a continuous commitment to change.

Webinar: Sex Crimes Cold Case: Learning From the Ghosts of Investigations Past

September 30 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am PDT
Free

Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office (JSO) was one of the early grantees of the Bureau of Justice Assistance’s Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (SAKI), a program designed to address the nationwide plague of unsubmitted, untested sexual assault kits. JSO used SAKI funds to submit kits for analysis and also to assign advocates, investigators, and prosecutors to pursue investigative leads for previously overlooked cases. One of the outcomes of this initiative was a better understanding of sex crimes investigations – the challenges, shortcomings, and successes. Sergeant DeVevo will discuss the lessons learned, as well as the mistakes, and explore promising practices in cold case investigations.
