This session will provide a foundation to help attendees understand the dynamics of responding to internet-based crimes such as domestic/dating violence, sexual assault and stalking, and understand legislative challenges in existing state statutes.
The presenter will also give ways that campus law enforcement officials can help find victim advocacy organizations and other victim services.
Lastly, the presenter will offer trauma-based interviewing techniques that can help distinguish the specific form and nature of violations.
Session Sneak Peek
Learning Objective 1: Attendees will understand why individuals may feel they’re the victim of a cyber crime, and how the emotional, intellectual, and physiological responses they demonstrate at the time of the incident and afterwards can be highly consistent with responses to the same acts committed in person.
Learning Objective 2: Attendees will understand the risks associated with internet use. Particular focus will be devoted to relationship-based crimes like dating/domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking, although risks also include hate crimes, terrorist threats, identity theft and much more.
Learning Objective 3: Attendees will be able to offer specific examples in which various online incidents in channels such as social media outlets like Ogle, Yik Yak and others have blurred the lines of "legitimate social media" standards typically referred to in Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram and others. These examples will be facilitated with the understanding of existing common legal frames for criminal statutes, and the encroaching effect that cyber-crime is having on 'traditional' criminal activity.
