Conference on Crimes Against Women (CCAW)
The Conference on Crimes Against Women was established in 2006 to be the national clearinghouse for training on best practices regarding the investigation and prosecution of violent crimes against women. It is presented annually by Genesis Women's Shelter and the Dallas Police Department in association with the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Behavioral Analysis Unit. Here, national experts present the most relevant training and cutting edge techniques in addressing these crimes. This is the only national conference that addresses the entire range of crimes committed against women.
Conference participants are the “first-line responders” to violence against women including FBI agents, state and local law enforcement officers, state and federal prosecutors, representatives of the U.S. Department of Justice, forensic nurses, domestic violence shelter employees and victim advocates from across the U.S. and Canada.
The 8th Annual Conference on Crimes Against Women will be held April 8-10, 2013 at the Sheraton Hotel, Downtown Dallas. For information about sponsorship, providing scholarships for local officers, or participating in the 2013 Conference please contact Becky Park, National Conference Director, firstname.lastname@example.org
