The National Campus Law Enforcement Trainer Development Program on Sexual and Gender Based Violence, held in partnership with the East Central University STTAABLE Campus Program, offers law enforcement who train on the topics of sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, and stalking an interactive opportunity to strengthen core presentation skills, incorporate experiential learning into instruction, develop training lesson plans and content, and troubleshoot problems in the training environment while educating law enforcement about these crimes on campus. Participants will interact with expert trainers on response to these crimes, obtain information on the most current investigation strategies, and explore effective methods for presenting training curriculum and facilitating discussions on these crimes.

For over a decade, 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 Initiative on Violence Against Women focuses attention and resources on developing the capacity and commitment of law enforcement executives to address crimes of violence against women.
