Description: Have you ever wondered how the military justice system differs from the civilian criminal justice system?  Do you want to know the options for how the command and the military justice system can respond when there are incidents of intimate partner violence and sexual assault?  If the answer to these questions is yes, then this Webinar is for you.  The Webinar will provide an overview of the military justice system with an emphasis on intimate partner violence and sexual assault.  There will also be an overview of the DOD Victim Witness Assistance Program. 

Audience: Anti-violence advocates, FAP advocates, mental health providers, offender intervention program staff, law enforcement, probation, parole, court, and corrections personnel are encouraged to participate so that we may strengthen our professional relationships and learn from each other as we do this work.
