WI DOJ to Host Training For Prosecutors on How to Prosecute Domestic Violence Cases

 

WAUKESHA — The Wisconsin Department of Justice Violence Against Women Resource Prosecutor (VAWRP) Project will be providing training on how to prosecute domestic violence cases tomorrow in Waukesha. The training is made possible by federal grants that DOJ received through the Office of Justice Assistance.

 

The single-day training will teach prosecutors how to handle domestic violence cases with a victim-centered and defendant-focused approach.

 

Thursday
8:30 am – 4:30 p.m.
Waukesha State Office Building
141 North Barstow Street
Waukesha

 

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.

 

If you would like to schedule an interview with Assistant Attorney General Jill Karofsky, who will be presenting tomorrow's training, please contact Bill Cosh at (608) 266-1221.
