This training is designed for law enforcement (homicide and death investigators),
coroner/medical examiner investigators (medicolegal death investigators) and those in the child protection field.
The instruction will comprehensively examine all aspects of responding to and investigating cases of child homicide and unexplained deaths of children, either through accidental causes or those committed by parents, family members, caretakers, or others, and all forms of child maltreatment. Actual case studies will be presented to emphasize teaching points and to provide practical exercises for the participant discussions. The instructors have 60 years of combined experience in child death and homicide investigation, and all aspects of violence against children on a local and national level.
