Police Officer Training

As part of the CD-CP Program, New Haven police officers of all ranks receive training on principles of: 

  • Child development
  • Human functioning
  • Responses to trauma 

This training is intended to provide officers with a foundation for their interactions with children and families in the course of their work. 

Other professionals involved in the CD-CP Program, e.g., child protection workers, juvenile justice professionals, advocates and educators may participate in the seminars for police officers as well.
