Description: 

The National Center for Victims of Crime, with funding from the Office on Violence Against Women, announces a new webinar in a series addressing untested sexual assault kits: Into the Lab: Mandatory Testing of Sexual Assault Kits. Illinois (in 2009) and Texas (in 2011) enacted state laws mandating the testing of sexual assault kits (SAKs). Both laws required audits of the untested sexual assault kits that had languished for years in evidence storage rooms as well as timely testing of all sexual assault kits moving forward. This webinar, presented by Cara Smith and Torie Camp, will describe how the Illinois and Texas laws came about, key aspects of both states' laws, results of the statewide audits, and impact of the laws on the criminal justice system and victims of sexual assault. Speakers will discuss barriers to passage of these laws, challenges to implementation, and wish lists for improvement.If you have any questions about this Webinar, please email Ilse Knecht or Torie Camp, or by phone at 512-940-6932.

Implementing sexual violence prevention work within independent school districts can be challenging for a myriad of reasons not limited to disinterest, scheduling difficulties, and the censure of topic areas. Prevention work can be hugely successful outside of the traditional classroom. This interactive webinar will discuss techniques to identify and foster successful partnerships with existing local agencies, youth serving organizations, and community groups.

Description: 

Incident-based data reported by law enforcement capture numerous elements that can help uncover patterns about particular types of crime, crime victims, arrestees, and other factors. The knowledge provided from analyzing IBR data has contributed to strategic and operational changes in law enforcement agencies, the creation of more effective prevention programs, the establishment of educational programs for victims and advocacy groups, and changes in justice policy. The purpose of this webinar is to demonstrate the utility of incident-based data as an analytic tool to address matters relevant to policy. Presenters will discuss issues they have addressed using such data: how they analyzed the data, how the findings led to a better understanding of problems such as domestic violence and disproportionate minority contact, and the policy and/or strategic implications of their findings. They will also discuss the limitations of the data and possible future research to further explore the issue.Panelists: Max Schlueter SAC Director, Vermont Center for Justice Research Rob McManus SAC Director, Office of Justice Programs, South Carolina Department of Public SafetyModerator: Lisa Walbolt Wagner, Research Associate, Justice Research and Statistics Association
