THE POLICE AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE- MORE THAN ARRESTS
You’ve heard about mandatory arrest in domestic violence cases – somebody is going to jail if you call the police, right? What about dual arrests? Do police have special training for DV? How do they decide who is the perpetrator? Who makes decisions about police training and actions in these cases?
All these questions and more will be covered by Margaret Alquist, MSW, MPA, when she joins us Saturday to talk about correction departments and domestic violence. Margaret is currently a presentence writer for sex offenders and also DV lead. She has been involved in domestic violence issues for the Washington State Department of Corrections and is responsible for developing and implementing a DV policy, curriculum, and training for DOC staff. Margaret started out her DV career as a community-based DV advocate with New Beginnings. She also served as a crisis social worker for Oahu Hawaii’s child protection system. Margaret is an active member of the King County DV and Child Maltreatment Coordinated Response Oversight Committee and has participated over the last ten year in an East King County collaborative on DV coordinated response. So let’s talk police and domestic violence!
