Non-Fatal Strangulation – Virtual Family Violence Training
From 2003 through 2016, at least 1671 Georgia Citizens lost their lives due to Domestic Violence. Georgia ranks 8th in the nation for the rate at which men kill women in single-victim, domestic violence-related murders. Firearms were the leading weapon of choice by batterers. In over 41% of the cases, children were present during the domestic violence homicide. Successfully investigating and prosecuting Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault cases requires that law enforcement, victims’ advocates and prosecutors work, train and learn together.
Prosecuting Attorney’s Council of Georgia and the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council welcomes a Forensic Nurse as a guest speaker to present on Non-Fatal Strangulation in Domestic Violence Cases. Non-fatal strangulation by an intimate partner is a risk factor for major assault, or attempted or completed homicide of women and men. Please join us as we discuss Strangulation in Domestic Violence.
