Violence is preventable, and more U.S. cities are exploring public health approaches to create safe, thriving communities. Prevention Institute developed the UNITY RoadMap for cities to more effectively and sustainably prevent violence before it occurs. Grounded in partnerships and prevention strategies, the UNITY RoadMap describes the essential elements for implementing a comprehensive strategy. Presenters will introduce the UNITY RoadMap and describe how its elements have been integrated into local efforts, such as the Seattle Youth Violence Prevention Initiative.

A strangulation assault may leave no visible external injuries such as bruises or marks. Over 50-80% of strangulation victims do not present visible, external injuries. While external signs and symptoms of strangulation may be difficult to detect to the naked eye, new technology is available to assist and detect underlying physical injuries incurred from a strangulation assault. This technology can also be applied to other areas of the body where bruises or injury may not be visible.
During this webinar, the presenters will discuss Alternative Light Source (ALS) technology and Negative Filter software programs used with digital camera systems and explore how they might be used in examining victims who have been strangled or beaten. ALS technology may be used to identify many types of evidence that would otherwise go undetected under standard lighting conditions or in daylight, such as semen, urine, blood, teeth marks, and fingerprints.
The presenters will also review research conducted to investigate how such technology has been used in cases involving strangulation and other forms of injury for increased identification, and discuss the potential outcomes and challenges associated with using this technology for evidence gathering purposes. Case examples will also be presented and resources provided, for current research using ALS for documentation of injury.

Are murderers and perpetrators of murder/suicide (terrorists) crazy? Can we actually prevent the next violent attack or are we relegated to responding/reacting to violence? After Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School before taking his own life, in just the past week a 14-year-old boy murdered a beloved teacher in Massachusetts and a 12-year-old boy shoots and kills a beloved teacher in Nevada. The Navy Yard shooter, Aaron Alexis, shot and killed 12 people before he was killed (suicide by cop?).
The most lethal of all aggressors, perpetrators of murder/suicide, are increasing at an alarming rate. Are we creating a society of sociopaths? We have lived under the illusion that mental health assessment, profiling and even threat assessment can reliably prevent the next shooting but history has told a different story.
John D. Byrnes, Founder and CEO of the Center for Aggression Management will address these questions and offer reliable prevention solutions. John D. Byrnes has over 4,700 Linkedin Security and Law Enforcement Connections with over 2,900 endorsements.
