The Prosecuting Attorney's Council of Georgia and the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council presents Family Violence Training 2023.

From 2003 through 2016, at least 1671 Georgia Citizens lost their lives due to Domestic Violence. Georgia ranks 8th in the nation for the rate at which men kill women in single-victim, domestic violence-related murders. Firearms were the leading weapon of choice by batterers. In over 41% of the cases, children were present during the domestic violence homicide. Successfully investigating and prosecuting Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault cases requires that law enforcement, victims' advocates and prosecutors work, train and learn together.

This FREE program is specifically designed to bring together police officers, victims' advocates, and prosecutors in your area to learn and discuss the latest strategies and techniques for investigating and prosecuting Domestic Violence, and Sexual Assault related offenses that occur in your jurisdiction. You will also earn up to 6 CLE, POST or Victims' Advocate hours.

This training will be hosted by the Georgia Public Safety Training Center. The courtroom is located on the second floor, above the main lobby. You will need to present your ID (Driver's License or County/State ID) at the gate. Please DO NOT park in visitor parking. Please park in the student parking lot.
