Training

Training 

The Training is intended for the education of state and federal law enforcement officers, prosecutors, medical professionals, first response teams,  judges, court personnel, social workers, adult and juvenile probation officers, educators, clergy, attorneys and the general public.

We intend to encourage communication with people in communities.

It is ultimately the combined experience of first responders, parents, families and the general public that will make the world a better place for children.
