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.

Saving Our Girls: Being Young, Missing, and Black and the Prevalence of Sex Trafficking

Saving Our Girls: Being Young, Missing, and Black and the Prevalence of Sex Trafficking

The story of missing Black girls in Washington, DC in 2017 played a pivotal role in national news coverage about missing teens and, while officials tried to explain the numerous cases of those who went missing, far too many of them remain unresolved. The Black and Missing Foundation indicates that nearly 40 percent of all missing people in the country are people of color. Yet, today, the missing girls in DC receive little attention. Moreover, most of these girls come from marginalized, under-resourced communities and are primarily low-income, which in Washington DC, a city of haves and have-nots, exposes a part of the capital the rest of America may rarely see. A deeper, more nuanced problem, that includes at-risk Black girls, whose lives and struggles sometimes involve sex trafficking, that is often ignored.

Is Forensic Compliance Working? Lessons Learned from the Colorado Evaluation Project

Is Forensic Compliance Working? Lessons Learned from the Colorado Evaluation Project

The efficacy of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) forensic compliance provisions have not been systematically evaluated since the inception of the laws in 2005 and 2013. Data on how forensic compliance is being implemented, why survivors are choosing certain reporting options, and what actually happens to cases when a survivor decides at a later time to engage with a law enforcement investigation is a largely unknown landscape.

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.
