 IACP's Partnership with the Office on Violence Against Women

In collaboration with the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) of the US Department of Justice, the IACP has developed the National Law Leadership Institute On Violence Against Women. This initiative reflects the continued partnership and shared commitment of IACP and OVW in their efforts to bring crimes of violence against women to the forefront of policing. Over the past several years, the IACP and OVW have collaborated to provide direction and support on numerous violence against women topics to several thousand federal, state, local, Tribal, and campus police agencies through a comprehensive technical assistance delivery system. The National Law Enforcement Leadership Institute on Violence Against Women is a “next step” in this effort, one that focuses attention and resources on developing the capacity and commitment of law enforcement to address crimes of violence against women.

Goal of Law Enforcement Leadership Institute on Violence Against Women

To develop and enhance strategies for sworn law enforcement executives to effectively marshal and deploy law enforcement resources for proactive interventions to prevent and eliminate violence against women.
