A nationally and internationally-recognized conference for professionals from the fields of law enforcement, prosecution, child protective services, social work, children’s advocacy, therapy, and medicine who work directly with child victims of crime.
The goal of the Crimes Against Children Conference is to provide practical instruction, using current information, the newest ideas and most successful intervention strategies, to those professionals responsible for combating the many and varied forms of crimes against children.

In addition to traditional topics in the field of crimes against children, we have added 9 unique tracks of computer lab training for those professionals working on internet-related crimes against children.
During the years since its beginnings, the Crimes Against Children Conference has established a reputation among professionals for high-quality training and great networking opportunities.

DCAC houses the Child Abuse Unit of the Dallas Police Department, five units of CPS, and an Assistant District Attorney. Having all of these professionals under one roof drives collaboration and communication in the very sensitive cases that DCAC coordinates. DCAC also works with, among others, more than 25 other police agencies in Dallas County and Children’s Medical Center. A DCAC forensic interviewer listens to the child’s story and asks non-leading, developmentally-appropriate questions as the child talks about the trauma he/she has experienced. Law enforcement and CPS professionals observe the interview from a separate room.This reduces trauma for the child and provides for a much stronger case if the case goes to court.
