The United States Department of Justice‘s National Indian Country Training Initiative (NICTI), together with the Training Institute on Strangulation Prevention, is holding an Indian Country Strangulation and Suffocation Seminar on November 6-9, 2017, at the National Advocacy Center (NAC). Strangulation is a lethal form of violence and is common in domestic violence and sexual assault cases. This three and one-half day course is designed for experienced federal and tribal multi-disciplinary professionals (prosecutors, law enforcement officers, advocates, medical professionals) who work domestic violence and sexual assault cases in Indian Country. This course will provide an in-depth examination of the mechanics of strangulation and suffocation from a medical, legal, law enforcement and advocacy perspective.
Participants are encouraged to register as a team; for example, a prosecutor and investigator or a prosecutor and a medical provider may register as a team. Individual registrations will also be considered. Nominations are due by Friday, September 22, 2017
