                                          2010 Course Offering for:
                                               First Response
                                              to Violent Crime
    Description: First Response to Violent Crime is a training program designed to enhance the skills
    of law enforcement, firefighters, paramedics, hospital personnel, advocates and other interested par-
    ties who are first responders to the scene of violent crimes. Many times a trained victim advocate is
    not available at the crime scene. By addressing the victim’s immediate emotional and physical
    needs, the first responder can gain the victim’s confidence and support. This not only fosters coop-
    eration during the first responder’s initial contact, but also assists the victim in his or her recovery
    process.
    This year’s curriculum will include segments on:
                                 Assisting Survivors During a Homicide Investigation
    This session will discuss strategies for a successful investigation as well as providing assistance for
    survivors of homicide to minimize secondary victimization. Evidence collection at the crime scene;
    building rapport and conducting survivor assessments; and the physical, psychological and financial
    needs of survivors will be discussed.
                                  Risk Assessment of Children in Abusive Situations
    This session will assess the circumstances of child risk factors to ensure the safety of the child when
    responding to a scene with children present. Topics include the correlation between child risk
    factors and domestic violence; the propensity for violence toward children and the presence of
    anti-social traits in the offender.
                                 Domestic Violence and Successful Victim Assistance
    This session will discuss the first responder’s role as a critical component of the response necessary
    to address domestic violence. Discussion will include how the following can aid victims: information
    and support; referring victims to shelters; the impact of offender accountability, and why arrest alone
    will not deter future incidents.
