PAAM to host Webinar on ‘Being an Effective and Credible Witness on the Stand’

The Prosecuting Attorneys Association of Michigan will present the Traffic Safety Training Program Webinar “Being an Effective and Credible Witness on the Stand: Through the Eyes of a Judge, Prosecutor, and Defense Attorney” on Wednesday, January 12, from noon to 1 p.m. via Zoom.

Testifying in court can be a stressful experience for law enforcement officers, whether it’s an officer’s first or 20th time.  In the courtroom, the officer will encounter the judge presiding over the case, the prosecutor or city attorney handling the matter, and the defense attorney retained or appointed on the case.  In this webinar, a judge, prosecutor, and defense attorney will discuss key points from their perspectives as it relates to effective and credible courtroom testimony. 

There is no charge to attend this webinar, but registration is required.  To register, visit www.michiganprosecutor. org and click on “training.”

After registering attendees will receive a confirmation email from Zoom with instructions on how to join the webinar.  Registrants should make sure retain the confirmation email sent to them and carefully enter their email address correctly. 

The training handouts, if any, will be made available the day of each webinar.
