The IACP, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Justice Office on Violence Against Women, is sponsoring the National Law Enforcement First-Line Supervisor Training on Violence Against Women. This training is for sworn law enforcement who hold primary responsibility for overseeing first responders. This 8-week virtual training offers a unique opportunity to:
Explore current approaches for responding to and investigating the crimes of violence against women
Recognize culture and its effect on responding to violence against women crimes to maximize supervisory efforts
Assess current agency and officer efforts
Share successes, challenges, and solutions with law enforcement peers
Identify practical strategies and action plans specific to agency needs
Strengthen leadership skills for addressing and preventing domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and dating violence
Guided by nationally recognized leaders in the law enforcement response to crimes of violence against women, the
training is designed to increase understanding of these crimes and develop mentoring, training, and leadership skills. For more information, please visit: https://www.theiacp.org/projects/national-law-enforcement-leadership-initiative-onviolence-against-women
