AG’s Office to provide trainings on investigating, prosecuting domestic violence

TOPEKA – (October 31, 2013) – The Kansas Attorney General’s Office will offer four trainings in November for law enforcement professionals in combating domestic violence, Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced today.

“We want to build on the good work by so many dedicated Kansans throughout Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October,” Schmidt said. “These trainings will promote best practices and will focus on the importance of a collaborative approach in enforcing the laws against domestic violence throughout our state.”

The training sessions will be conducted in Dodge City, Colby, Pittsburg and Manhattan. They are open to prosecutors, law enforcement officers and allied professionals working within law enforcement or a local prosecutor’s office. Continuing education hours are available for attorneys and law enforcement officers in attendance. For more information about the sessions, or to register to attend, go to www.ag.ks.gov/dv-seminar.

The Kansas Attorney General’s Office also provides year-round support to local organizations working to reduce domestic violence. The Victims Service grant programs support many local organizations that provide education, support groups and emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence. The office also administers the Batterer Intervention Program, which certifies programs across the state that provide domestic violence intervention. More information about these programs is available on the Attorney General’s website at www.ag.ks.gov.
