The Use of Technology in Intimate Partner Stalking Conference and Advanced Training for Criminal Justice Professionals
Register or learn more │ October 13-15, 2015 │Atlanta, GA
The Stalking Resource Center, in partnership with the National Network to End Domestic Violence, is excited to announce the Use of Technology in Intimate Partner Stalking Conference and Advanced Criminal Justice Professionals Training.
In the 2-day foundational conference, participants will gain a basic understanding of how various technologies are misused by stalkers and how to enhance community responses to stalking. Tracks for advocates and criminal justice professionals will provide participants with information on how offenders use various technologies to stalk, how to document technology misuse, how to investigate and build a stalking case, and how to work with victims to enhance their safety. This conference will provide an opportunity to network with your colleagues from across the country and discuss challenges facing practitioners in this field. This conference is open to all professionals working with survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking; including advocates, civil attorneys, prosecutors, and criminal justice professionals.
Immediately following the conference, we will hold an Advanced Criminal Justice Professionals Training that will provide a hands-on, skill building opportunity focusing on technology investigations. Participants will gain essential information on the documentation, collection, and preservation of cell phone and computer evidence that will greatly enhance their ability to investigate cases where technology is misused as a tool in stalking. This training is intended for criminal justice professionals only, including law enforcement, prosecutors, and community correction officers.
Registration is free of charge for both events. Attendees are responsible for covering all of their own travel costs. Please note that priority for registration for both events is given to grantees of the U.S. Department of Justice Office on Violence Against Women.
