The Illinois Family Violence Coordinating Council Annual Spring Training will be held on Friday, June 7th at Bunn Auditorium in Springfield.
This year’s focus will be on Domestic Violence Risk Assessment and Strangulation. Our speaker is Lieutenant Daniel E. Rincon from the Scottsdale Police Department and Former Supervisor of the Domestic Violence Unit. He is a training with the Institute on Strangulation Prevention through the Alliance of Hope International.
Dan Rincon is a 26-year veteran of the Scottsdale Police Department (Arizona) and earned a Bachelors of Science Degree in Justice Studies and a Masters Degree in Criminal Justice from Arizona State University. Dan is married and has five children ranging from the ages of 32 to 14 years old and resides in Phoenix, Arizona. Previous to his career in law enforcement, Dan served in the United States Navy for four years (1985-1989) and the Arizona Department of corrections for two years (1989-1991).
He holds the rank of Police Lieutenant and was the Domestic Violence Unit supervisor for over five years. Dan has served on the East Valley Domestic Violence Fatality Review Board (Phoenix Metropolitan Area), and currently serves as faculty for the Training Institute on Strangulation Prevention (Nat’l Family Justice Center Alliance – San Diego), and has been a commissioner since 2012 on the Governor’s Commission to Prevent Violence Against Women for both past Governor Jan Brewer and current Governor Doug Ducey.
Lieutenant Rincon’s investigative experience includes being lead detective and detective sergeant on homicides, robberies, sexual assaults, major assaults, domestic violence cases, child abuse and gang related investigations. While under his leadership, the Scottsdale Police Department’s Domestic Violence Unit detectives increased their arrests made by 230%, decreased individual caseloads by 80%, and created a Domestic Violence Repeat-Offender Database that gave first responders the ability to access an offender’s criminal history and convictions while still at the scene of a reported DV crime. These initiatives contributed to a 7% decrease in domestic violence in the City of Scottsdale in 2008, which was the first decrease in domestic violence cases in over a decade. Since 2009, Lieutenant Rincon has dedicated himself to educating law enforcement professionals, prosecutors, victim advocates and others stakeholders in the area of domestic violence investigations and specifically fatal and near fatal strangulation investigations throughout Arizona and nationally. As part of their management team, Lieutenant Rincon has served in their Investigative Service Bureau, Uniformed Service Bureau, Training Unit, and the Office of the Chief of Police - Internal Affairs.
