Law Enforcement Training

Through a grant from the South Dakota Department of Social Services, The Network Against Family Violence and Sexual Assault coordinates FREE TRAINING FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT AND PROSECUTORS on responding to domestic violence and sexual assault cases across the state. These trainings meet the state law requirements.

Trainings are done utilizing a team approach, with trainers from law enforcement, prosecution and a victim advocacy providing trainings directly in local communities and jurisdictions. The team provides training on topics including: domestic violence, sexual violence, strangulation, stalking, elder abuse, and human trafficking, and can tailor each training to meet local needs.

If you or your agency are interested in learning more about hosting a training in your area, please contact Alex Van Voorhis, Grants Program Manager at or 605-731-0041.
