Join the leading experts in the country from the Training Institute in Strangulation Prevention, a program of Alliance for HOPE International, and the Department of Justice’s National Indian Country Training Initiative in a dynamic, hands-on 3.5-day course on strangulation and suffocation murders.

Crime scene staging research has found that most offenders who stage crime scenes are male, most victims are female, and the most common victim-offender relationship involving staging is intimate partner relationships. Therefore, this course focuses on detecting staged crime scenes in intimate partner-related deaths.
 Seasoned investigators, medical examiners, and prosecutors can be misdirected by killers and can close highly suspicious cases as accidents, suicides, or undetermined cause of death cases. This course will identify the primary mistakes made in staged crime scene cases and walk attendees through the pathway to build prosecutable homicide cases. Attendees will work on actual cases and meet the surviving family members of the victims. Registration is limited. Priority will be given to multidisciplinary federal and tribal teams working in tribal communities. Prosecutors, law enforcement, advocates and medical personnel are encouraged to register as a team.  

There is no tuition cost and travel related expenses will be covered by the U.S. Department of Justice for those selected to attend the training.
