Enhancing Law Enforcement Response to Victims (ELERV)
The Enhancing Law Enforcement Response to Victims (ELERV) Strategy introduces federal, state, local, campus, and tribal law enforcement leaders to the concepts and beneﬁts of enhancing their response to victims of all crimes. It also illustrates how every person in a law enforcement agency has a role in effective victim response. Due to the customizable nature of the ELERV Strategy, agencies can easily start small and build on their efforts over time.
Implementing the ELERV Strategy can lead to broader community-wide trust and confidence in the police, foster the healing process for victims, increase victim participation, and produce stronger, more comprehensive cases to hold offenders accountable.

Additionally, the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) Fellow is hosting monthly Learning Collaborations and providing no-cost training and technical assistance focused on implementing the ELERV Strategy and law enforcement-based victim services. For additional information, see the flyers below.
