Virtual Prosecutors’ Training
Source: National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life (NCALL)
The National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life (NCALL), under a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice Office on Violence Against Women, is pleased to announce a biweekly series of eleven virtual training opportunities for prosecutors, to begin on July 13, 2021.
Elder abuse is a pervasive yet vastly underreported problem. With 10,000 Americans turning 65 every day, the population is aging, and the incidence of elder abuse can be expected to rise as well. The purpose of this series is to educate prosecutors so they are equipped to make well-informed prosecutorial decisions in elder physical and sexual abuse, neglect, and exploitation cases in order to hold perpetrators accountable, promote public safety, and address victims’ needs.
The series will be taught by nationally recognized experts in the field and is grouped into three general topic areas. There is no charge for the series, and participants may attend all sessions or only the ones they are available for. All sessions are one hour in length.
Verification of attendance will be provided to attendees who wish to seek CLE credits for these trainings. All sessions will be recorded and made available on the NCALL website.
While this series is designed for prosecutors, the July and August webinars will also be open to allied professionals (such as victim advocates, investigators, court staff, and law enforcement) as space permits. The remaining webinars are for prosecutors only.
