The Louisiana Attorney General’s Office and P.O.S.T. invite your department to participate in classes to be held in your area as a part of our annual training series on the Law Enforcement Response to Domestic Violence and Orders of Protection and Law Enforcement Response to Human Trafficking.  The Louisiana Department of Justice, Office of the Attorney General has developed, and implemented Louisiana’s first Peace Officers Standards and Training (P.O.S.T.) certified law enforcement training dealing with issues of domestic abuse and most recently has launched Louisiana’s Law Enforcement training specific to Human Trafficking.

 

These comprehensive courses utilize a standardized and uniform curriculum that concentrates on areas such as the nuts and bolts of domestic violence and human trafficking, laws and legal issues, orders of protection, safety, investigative techniques and special issues such as stalking and strangulation.

 

In addition, the course is facilitated by a team of certified instructors, as well as certified academy instructors who have extensive knowledge in the area of domestic violence and human trafficking representing advocacy, law enforcement response, and the criminal justice system.

 

Course instruction and all materials are provided at no cost to your agency. This class will accommodate a maximum of 40 participants so early registration is encouraged.  Please see the attached schedule for the upcoming trainings in your area.

 

To register officer/officers for this training, please visit the Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice / P.O.S.T. website at http://www.lcle.la.gov for postings and agendas.

All Communities are Not Created Equal – Prevention Institute @ Webinar
Jul 31 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
How can violence prevention become more equity focused? What does it look like to acknowledge the impact of race, class, sexual orientation and ability in the development, implementation and evaluation of prevention efforts? This web conference will provide a space for a closer look at enhancing violence prevention work to promote health equity. Based on the framework presented in CDC’s recent publication "A Practitioner’s Guide for Advancing Health Equity: Community Strategies for Preventing Chronic Disease", this web conference will delve into disproportionate outcomes based on race, class, sexual orientation, and ability within the context of violence prevention. Guests will explore opportunities to better address equity issues and support health equity as a part of prevention initiatives.
