Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPOs) also known as “Red Flag Laws” are a promising tool of intervention, relatively unknown to prosecutors across the nation. As caseloads swell and rates of violence surge, it is time to learn about and begin to deploy tools that can help mitigate and prevent future harm upstream, when warning signs first come to light.
Please join us for this engaging presentation led by national experts who practice in this area of law and can share the robust applications of ERPOs across a variety of high risk behaviors. They will be joined by leading researchers in the field who study ERPO implementation and their efficacy.
Presenters will join us from the Regional Domestic Violence Firearms Enforcement Unit of King County, Washington and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
