Survivors of sexual violence consistently tell us that fearing the loss of privacy is one of the most compelling reasons sexual violence is not reported to law enforcement. Knowing that, how many of us have reflected on how what we do contributes to that feeling of loss? This training is an opportunity to do just that, reviewing the many laws and rules that support a concept of victim privacy, but are inadvertently violated, or worse still, actively ignored. We will discuss how to partner with victims to protect privacy, protect due process rights of the defendants, and build better cases.

Experience teaches us, and empirical research shows, that a batterer with access to firearms increases the risk of death for the victim, family, and responding officers. But properly responding to that risk involves a tangled web of federal and state statutes, court rules and procedures, and our duty to protect the constitutional rights of everyone. This webinar will help untangle and make sense of that web, and offer insight into what prosecutors can do to limit a batterer's access to firearms consistent with our duty to always do justice. The webinar will suggest practical solutions, back by data and practice wisdom gathered from years of experience.
