Building Bridges with Prosecution
Domestic violence situations are among the most complicated and difficult cases that prosecutors must handle. The history and relationship of the people involved can be quite complex. These types of cases are often he said / she said issues. Prosecutors rely on 911 and law enforcement to provide all their discovery and evidence required for the case. They must determine how to charge the accused based on the laws of their jurisdiction, and the amount and validity of evidence that is provided to them, as well as what they can collect during the investigation. The means and methods for prosecutors to collect viable, useful evidence can enable swift due process, and improve outcomes for victims. The panelists will discuss the perspectives of: -Prosecution -Law enforcement -PSAP/911 -Victims and victim advocacy The law enforcement, PSAP/911 and victim advocates will provide insights on how they interact with prosecution and their roles before a trial, during a trial, and how they support victims. The panelists will discuss their roles and their challenges in discovery and evidence collection for a domestic violence case. This education will provide advocates and survivors further understanding of why the criminal justice system needs to be transformed so discovery and evidence collection at the very origination of the crime can support the victims of domestic violence.
