The criminal justice system can be overwhelming, intimidating, and confusing for anyone who does not work within it every day. This training will serve to enhance the capacity of a broad range of professionals, including victim advocates, mental health and social workers, first responders, and others, to address the needs of victims of crime as they navigate the criminal justice system in Rhode Island. The goal is to provide attendees with information, practical tools, and resources within a criminal justice context so they can best inform, advocate for, and support victims of crime through the process. Presenters will overview the five stages of the criminal justice process:

Criminal Arrest & Police Interaction; Bail/Arraignment & Probable Cause; Trial Preparation; Offender Sentencing & Victim Impact; and, Parole & Release. Victims’ rights and what a victim may expect at each stage of the process will also be covered.

Presented by:

Colonel Hugh T. Clements, Jr. - Chief, Providence Police Department
Carla Cuellar – Police Liaison, Family Service of Rhode Island with Providence Police Department
