MADISON — The Wisconsin Department of Justice Violence Against Women Resource Prosecutor (VAWRP) Project will be providing domestic violence trainings in four regions across Wisconsin this fall. The trainings are made possible by federal grants that DOJ received through the Office of Justice Assistance.
The single-day trainings will teach prosecutors how to handle domestic violence cases with a victim-centered and defendant-focused approach.

The trainings are designed to help prosecutors better educate law enforcement, juries, and judges about the actions of defendants and the responses of victims in these volatile cases and will cover issues such as charging decisions, firearm forfeitures, and trial techniques when victims recant, minimize, or fail to show for court.
