Individual Law Enforcement Scholarship Program
Application Deadline is May 17, 2010

The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), with funding from the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC), Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice, is pleased to offer a limited number of individual law enforcement scholarships for attending the Enhancing Law Enforcement Response to Victims in Indian Country forum to be held on June 23-24, 2010, in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

This one and a half day forum will feature a presentation on the Enhancing Law Enforcement Response to Victims Strategy Package and include breakout sessions on adapting the Strategy Package to fit American Indian/ Alaska Native communities and implementing an enhanced victim response. Discussion will center on the benefits and challenges of implementing the Strategy, and provide pilot tested procedures, implementation steps, and training resources for law enforcement executives in agencies serving American Indians/ Alaska Natives.

Upon conclusion of this forum, participants will have the necessary tools and knowledge to customize the IACP's Enhancing Law Enforcement Response to Victims Strategy Package to better meet the needs of their tribe’s crime victims. After implementing the tools and resources found in the Strategy, other agencies have experienced improved crime reporting through leveraging strong, community partnerships that build trust in public safety’s response to crime victims, and reduced crime in the community. Our program is committed to helping Indian Country do the same.
