Before It’s Too Late: Identifying Behaviors of Concern When Responding to Domestic Violence

Before It’s Too Late: Identifying Behaviors of Concern When Responding to Domestic Violence

Most mass homicides, a majority of which occur at home or have an intimate partner target, are over in mere minutes. The concept of responding to active shooter events cannot be how we solely address violence – because by then it is too late. This presentation will change the discussion surrounding how to respond to intimate partner and family violence to how to work together as a team to identify behaviors of concern and intervene before violence occurs or repeats.

International Safety Planning: Supporting Survivors of Forced Marriage and Domestic Violence

International Safety Planning: Supporting Survivors of Forced Marriage and Domestic Violence

Forced marriage is a serious problem impacting women and girls (and some men and boys) from across communities in the United States. Forced marriage often results in physical, psychological and sexual abuse, and can intersect with other forms of harm including domestic violence and human trafficking. Survivors face significant safety risks including the threat of being taken, and in some cases abandoned, overseas. Serving these survivors requires advanced and creative safety planning, risk assessment, long term emotional support and coordination with agencies not often involved in domestic violence intervention work. In this session, common case scenarios and best practice guidance for identifying and screening cases with an international component will be shared, including how to support survivors seeking to avoid travel and coordinate a repatriation for those already overseas. An overview of the available forms of legal remedies and other expert support resources will also be provided.

Development and Implementation of Domestic Violence High Risk Teams in Rural Communities

Development and Implementation of Domestic Violence High Risk Teams in Rural Communities

When evaluating domestic violence lethality, research demonstrates that location matters. For example, rural women endure more severe violence and experience a higher risk of lethality. Delayed law enforcement response times, coupled with greater distances to life-saving medical intervention, increases the risk of fatality. Domestic Violence High Risk Teams are essential in rural areas as a result, yet few communities have them in place. This session will help organizations determine which partners to include in their high-risk team, as well as how to overcome the various challenges of collaboration. The presenters will review the strategies they have implement to successfully to domestic violence cases in rural communities.

Taking Guns Away From Domestic Violence Offenders, and Keeping Them Away

Taking Guns Away From Domestic Violence Offenders, and Keeping Them Away

The overwhelming majority of those who serve in the noble profession of law enforcement are professionals who uphold their oath of office. However, we cannot ignore the numerous headlines, arrests, convictions, and lawsuits describing horrific acts of sexual misconduct perpetrated by law enforcement officers. When a predatory sexual offender has the power and authority of the police, this creates an extremely serious breach of the ethics of the profession, a violation of the color of law, and a traumatic victimization of a colleague or citizen whom law enforcement has sworn to protect.

I Survived Abuse at Home, But Can I Survive the Abuse of the Criminal Justice System?
