Using Federal Law to Prosecute Domestic Violence Crimes in Indian Country   [open pdf - 730KB]

"'Using Federal Law To Prosecute Domestic Violence Crimes in Indian Country' consists of a DVD and facilitator's guide intended to increase the knowledge of all federal, state, local, and tribal criminal justice and social service professionals working on domestic violence cases in Indian Country. The DVD is structured to allow users to view the production in full or by section. While the DVD itself conveys a tremendous amount of information, a discussion led by a facilitator with knowledge of and experience in domestic violence cases in Indian Country may be helpful, particularly if the training audience is new to the subject matter. This guide is intended to assist a facilitator with leading a discussion that will encourage the audience to consider the policies and practices within their own agencies and how the case scenarios would play out if investigated and prosecuted in their own jurisdiction. It will be up to the facilitator to inform a student if his or her response to a similar case scenario is feasible and practical, or if, in fact, it could jeopardize victim safety. Therefore, it is critical that anyone using this guide and/or the DVD have sufficient knowledge and experience with the subject matter."
