National Indian Country Training Initiative Training Announcement
Course: Getting Away with Murder: The Challenges of Staged Crime Scenes
Date: June 6-9, 2023 at 3pm Eastern Time

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.

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.
