Training Program on Enhancing Rural Law Enforcement Response to Violence Against Women

The Training Program on Enhancing Rural Law Enforcement Response to Violence Against Women provides rural law enforcement and dispatch/communications professionals training and technical assistance to enhance their response to violence against women crimes, including domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and strangulation. 

The IACP’s Enhancing Rural Law Enforcement Response to Violence Against Women training and resources provide promising practices specifically tailored to the barriers and challenges that law enforcement in rural communities may face in responding to domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and strangulation. Responding rural agencies may have limited personnel, resources, and community services, and be required to patrol expansive geographic areas, which can inhibit response time and limit emergency services.
