Course Description

Research shows that the way a death notification is made significantly impacts a family's grieving process, and can have a ripple effect on potential prosecutions and recovery efforts. The most valuable death notifications are delivered by trained professionals who utilize best practices, including pre-planning, compassionate notification, and coordinated follow up. The FBI Office for Victim Assistance and Penn State University developed this research based training as guidance for law enforcement officers who may be called upon to deliver death notification. Applicants who complete this online module will receive one (1) hour of POST training credit.
