Positive Impact and Topics

As research evolves, all healthcare and law enforcement professionals should continually evaluate their response to the diverse populations they serve. Violence perpetrated against communities has long been documented. Law enforcement is making huge strides to end violence perpetrated in communities of color. However, violence perpetrated against members of other communities is still under-reported and often overlooked by law enforcement. This workshop will address unique barriers to reporting and steps that can be taken to overcome those barriers. The presenters will also examine the significant impact of a timely response to victims has on the community and the importance of building positive relationships that encourage trust and respect.
