Webinar: Trauma Informed Practices for Law Enforcement and Prosecutors

A principal duty of law enforcement officers who work on cases of sexual assault, stalking, domestic violence, dating violence, and/or trafficking is to gather evidence of crimes experienced by survivors.  Learning about the signs of trauma and how they can best work with survivors who experience the effects of trauma can help law enforcement and prosecutors work more effectively with survivors and build stronger cases. STOP Administrators can strive to incorporate statewide and territory-wide trauma-informed training and practices, which will help disciplines understand what trauma is, learn about promising practices for working with survivors who live with its effects and use trauma-informed approaches to help avoid retraumatizing survivors.
