AEquitas provides technical assistance and training to develop the knowledge and skills of prosecutors and allied professionals working with cases involving sexual violence, intimate partner violence, stalking, human trafficking, and related violent crimes, with the aim of increasing the likelihood of positive outcomes in these cases. Positive outcomes are not limited to criminal convictions—they are outcomes in which the victim is protected and has access to justice, the offender is held accountable, and the community has confidence in the criminal justice system.
AEquitas training events focus on a multidisciplinary approach. Such an approach requires facilitation by experienced and knowledgeable professionals from various fields, including but not limited to prosecutors, victim advocates, law enforcement officers, judges, crime scene investigators, forensic nurse examiners, medical examiners, toxicologists, sex offender treatment providers, batterer intervention program facilitators, community-based service providers, faith-based service providers, medical and mental health practitioners, and probation and parole officers.
