The latest technologies and advancements in the investigation of human trafficking, sexual assault and stalking are among the topics to be discussed during a training conference sponsored by the Nebraska State Patrol.
Entitled “Crimes of Power and Control”, the two day conference, Sept. 19-20, at the Ramada Inn and Conference Center in Kearney, will present best practices and emerging ideas dealing with a variety of topics centered around the crimes of human trafficking, sexual assault, domestic violence and stalking.
Participants will hear from national speakers on the impact of sex trafficking on our communities, developing a community response to crimes of power and control and working with trauma victims. Sessions will also be provided on the use of technology in stalking cases, state firearm laws and enforcement, and achieving victim participation in the criminal justice system.
Conference participants will include prosecutors, advocates, medical personnel, victim assistance programs, corrections officers, campus personnel, law enforcement and individuals working with sexual assault and stalking victims or offenders. Funding for the conference is provided by a grant awarded to the Nebraska Crime Commission.
