The 2014 Iowa DEC Conference will be held Monday, April 7th, 2014 at Prairie Meadows in Altoona, IA. If you are a vendor interested in having a booth, or a speaker interested in presenting at the conference, please see the information below.
A local Iowa DEC Alliance utilizing best practices ensures that children receive an immediate and appropriate medical exam, including a test for exposure to toxic chemicals and developmental screening. Upon being removed from the crime scene, the children are provided with new clothing, food, and, if needed, crisis counseling and a shower or bath to reduce chemical exposure. A forensic interview is conducted with the child in a child-friendly environment, and a medical exam is conducted to determine the child's immediate safety and to collect important evidence used in the drug and child abuse prosecutions and Child in Need of Assistance (CINA) cases.
