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.
