The National Law Center for Children and Families wrapped up a successful year of the NLC PROTECTS Seminar Series on October 30th and 31st in New England.

A total of 98 investigators and prosecutors from Connecticut,  Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont attended the tenth NLC PROTECTS Seminar in Enfield, CT.

In addition to presentations on topics such as sex offender management, forensics, and on-line enticement, attendees heard from Kevin J. O’Connor, U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut.  Responses on the survey completed by attendees indicated that the seminar was “excellent in educating participants about different aspects of child sexual exploitation and available resources in different areas.”  Other respondents appreciated the up-to-date content and hearing from “speakers with a passion for what they do.”

To date, approximately 800 law enforcement officers from across the United States have taken part in the NLC PROTECTS Seminar Series.   Information on 2008 seminars will be posted online when available so check back often.
