Event date: March 3rd & 5th, 2020
Event location: Houston County Superior Courthouse (Perry, GA)
WPMH Legal was once again the Title Sponsor for this family violence training course for law enforcement in Houston County and surrounding Georgia counties. We understand that there is a problem of high turnover rate in law enforcement, so our team sponsored this free training to make sure that our local officers are knowledgeable about any updates that may have occurred in the area of domestic violence.
During this event, we invited the District Attorney’s office to present to the officers about how to help in the prosecution of domestic violence cases. The Domestic Violence Task Force also provided information about what they do, and the Georgia Legal Services Program presented on Temporary Protective Orders and how they work. In addition, the Domestic Violence Shelter talked about the services they provide victims in our service area.
Officers who participated received 6 hours of free P.O.S.T Certified Training upon completing the course.
