The Department of Justice recently released a guidance document for U.S. law enforcement titled, Identifying and Preventing Gender Bias in Law Enforcement Response to Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence to assist agencies in their efforts to reduce sexual and domestic violence in their communities and to strengthen agency response to victims. The IACP is funded to implement two project initiatives based on the recommendations of this guidance:
Integrity, Action, and Justice: Strengthening Law Enforcement Response to Domestic and Sexual Violence
Enhancing Community Trust: Proactive Approaches to Domestic & Sexual Violence
The Critical Need for Law Enforcement Agencies to Identify Gender Bias in Responses to Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence
Addressing and Preventing Gender Bias: Infographic Flyer
