The Second Annual Southwest Crimes Against Children Conference will again bring together representatives from law enforcement agencies, prosecutors, child and victim advocates, social workers and members of the court in a collaborative conference setting to share best practices and knowledge, receive training in new aspects of the law, investigative techniques and protocols and prosecutorial approaches to improve prosecution and judicial handling of cases of child abuse and neglect in New Mexico.

The underlying belief of this free 2-day conference is that a collaborative approach to cases from investigation to prosecution including practical and interactive instruction can only result in better outcomes, especially for the victims. Knowledge sharing, training, and education amongst all those invested in the process will result in the improvement of the investigative process, prosecution, and judicial handling of these cases. The conference will include hands on workshops, case studies, panel discussion round tables on cultural competence and differences* and plenaries focused on improving understanding, and awareness in the handling of criminal child abuse cases with the guiding force being to reduce trauma for the young victims.

* The conference is eligible for New Mexico Bar CLE Accreditation for Law Enforcement and Prosecutors.
