With support from the Department of Justice's Office on Violence
Against Women (OVW), the IACP's National Law Enforcement Leadership
Initiative proposes to build the leadership capacity of sworn law
enforcement executives across the United States on violence against
women crimes, strengthening the commitment of law enforcement officers
to respond to these crimes, and enhance the ability of communities to
respond to victims.
IACP’s National Law Enforcement Leadership Institute on Violence Against Women
is an unprecedented opportunity for law enforcement executives to
assess their agency’s current response to crimes of violence against
women and identify strategies to improve their ability to meet the needs
of the community.
The IACP’s National Law Enforcement Supervisor Training on Violence
Against Women is an opportunity for individuals who hold primary
responsibility for overseeing first responders to explore current
approaches for responding to and investigating the crimes of violence
against women. The training aims to increase understanding of these
crimes, and instill mentoring, training, and leadership skills.
IACP’s National Violence Against Women Law Enforcement Trainer
Development Program offers professionals currently training in this
field the opportunity to improve the quality and effectiveness of their
efforts to educate law enforcement officers, thereby developing the
agency’s response to victims of domestic violence, stalking, sexual
assault, and human trafficking crimes.
Currently, this program has been suspended and applications are no longer being accepted. Please contact Michael Rizzo at Rizzo@theiacp.org with any questions.
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 Enforcement Leadership Initiative 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. 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.
