Conversations with Karen

The first is about retraumatizing families with body parts left at the scene; and the second is about prosecutors who will believe anything to prosecute. Karen also talks to us about the James Holmes sentencing verdict in the Aurora Colorado theater shooting (our last show the jury was out). Also in our last show, Karen’s latest article ‘Investigating Without Playing Into Drama’ was pending posting by PI Now (below).

Advocacy Hub
NCISS continues to show leadership and its commitment to State Association outreach with the release of the new Advocacy Hub (AH). The AH is a wonderful tool for State Associations to monitor legislation effecting their state.
