Understanding the Benefits and Limitations of a Medical Forensic Exam: What Law Enforcement Needs to Know

Hosted by IAFN's FASTta Project

 

​Date: March 3, 2022

Time: 2:00–3:30 p.m. Eastern time
Speaker: Kim Nash, BSN, RN, SANE-A, SANE-P, Forensic Nursing Specialist at International Association of Forensic Nurses

 

Most professionals who respond to sexual assault crimes are familiar with the concept of a medical forensic examination (MFE). This presentation will discuss the benefits and limitations of those examinations. Particular focus will highlight what law enforcement needs to know to encourage and educate victims on the benefits of an exam as well as how exam findings may impact criminal justice needs such as investigation and prosecution. While content was developed with law enforcement professionals in mind, this presentation is appropriate for all disciplines who respond to sexual violence.

Department of Justice (DOJ) Government-to-Government Consultations with MMIP Steering Committee

Date: March 16, 2021

Time: 3:004:30pm Eastern time

This event will discuss DOJ’s efforts to address the unacceptably high rate of violent crime in Native communities, including the rates of missing or murdered indigenous persons. Deputy Attorney General Monaco recently issued a memorandum establishing the Department’s Steering Committee to address the crisis of missing or murdered indigenous persons and required that the Steering Committee consult with Tribal leaders on its work. As the Deputy Attorney General noted in that memo, challenges faced by Tribes are best met by Tribally-driven solutions, so outreach and communication with Tribes will be fundamental to DOJ’s efforts to promote public safety in Tribal communities.
