It's time to elevate your gang training by attending our Gang Cases: From the Crime Scene to the Courtroom. Back for a third year, Gang Cases combines lectures and hands-on exercises which will includes the critical phases of a gang investigation and trial.

Under the supervision of gang experts, a gang investigator and prosecutor will team up with the challenging task of working through a simulated gang scenario such as a DTO/cartel crime, human/sex trafficking, and other criminal gang activity that features responding to and processing a crime scene, interviewing of individuals, applying for a search warrant, constructing an investigative report, case preparation, and lastly an evidence presentation.

Students will benefit from the hands-on training as well as lectures on hot topics such as:

  • The Georgia Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act
  • Methods of Establishing "Nexus"
  • Gang Search Warrants & Affidavits
  • Social Media
  • Interviewing and Interrogation Techniques
  • And more!

Please note these lectures will be a refresher to assist with the exercise portion of the course. They are not meant to be a 101. If you are looking for a 101 training, please register for one of our upcoming Gangs & Organized Crime 101 courses. This specific course is advanced and will offer up to 20 CLE/POST credits.

Here are a few comments from our last conference:

"The hands on and real-world side of this training was unique, eye opening, and amazing!"

"I loved that we were paired up with ADAs and investigators and we covered a well-rounded set of topics."

"The role-playing exercises were fantastic!"
