As part of its continuing focus on officer safety and wellness, IACP has partnered with the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice to a develop a webinar that examines the officer safety considerations that arise when responding to a domestic violence call. This webinar examines the complexities and challenges faced by officers when interacting with offenders, victims, and witnesses and identifies tactics and protocols for ensuring officer, victim, and civilian safety, and presents quantitative research and case studies to demonstrate the dangers of responding to and managing on-scene investigations of domestic violence calls.

The live webinar will be held at 2 p.m. EST on Thursday, September 10th. To register, please click here.
