About Prosecutor Institutes
Zero Abuse Project will work with regional Children’s Advocacy Centers to offer a Prosecutor Institute in each of the four census regions. These institutes will be two-day training institutes for child abuse prosecutors. The first day will cover the following basic topics:
The second day of the institute will cover advanced topics selected by the community or state prosecutors hosting the course. Please check back to this page for more information on regional dates.
As part of a cooperative agreement from the Office of Juvenile Justice & Delinquency Prevention, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice, Zero Abuse Project will cover the travel and other expenses of speakers and will not charge any additional fees. However, the selected host site must provide assistance in promoting the event, registering prosecutors, applying for CLEs, and providing an appropriate venue for the training. The venue must be able to accommodate the audience you anticipate attending and must be able to accommodate basic technology (LCD projection, sound system, etc). Unless the host site is funding these expenses, the prosecutors or professionals attending the course are responsible for their own expenses (hotels, meals, travel, etc.)
In addition to one day of basic training, the TiPP Prosecutor Institutes will include one day of training on advanced topics selected by the host site. The topics may be selected from the list below. We also welcome suggestions from the association or agency hosting the institute.
