Enhancing Law Enforcement Response to Victims (ELERV) is an organizational strategy that introduces law enforcement leaders to the benefits, challenges, methods, and responsibilities for enhancing their response to victims of crime. Implementation of the ELERV strategy includes all branches and levels of law enforcement playing a role in enhancing response to victims, not simply the creation of a separate victim services unit
The benefit of ELERV is enhanced response to victims and community members which can: lead to broader community-wide trust and confidence in the police, foster the healing process for victims, and produce stronger, more comprehensive cases for law enforcement
