Upcoming Violence Against Women Crimes Training in Savannah

This September and November, the IACP’s National Law Enforcement Leadership Initiative on Violence Against Women will be holding two comprehensive training events in Savannah, Georgia. With support from the Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women, these transformative opportunities will be focused on assisting law enforcement in developing a practical, pro-active plan to increase agency effectiveness in responding to and investigating the crimes of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, and stalking.

The 16th National Law Enforcement Leadership Institute on Violence Against Women is a four-day event and an opportunity for law enforcement executives (first or second in command) to learn the latest strategies and tools to address the crimes of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and human trafficking. Participants will assess their agency’s responses to these crimes and explore new ways to hold perpetrators accountable while supporting victims. The Institute provides a forum for executives from across the nation to gather information about innovative initiatives, share promising practices, develop practical, proactive strategies for immediate implementation, and set goals to strengthen response to these crimes. Applications to attend the Institute in September, along with additional information, can be found on the Institute website.

The IACP will be returning to Savannah in November for the 2nd National Law Enforcement First Line Supervisor Training on Violence Against Women, a four-day event that provides an opportunity for law enforcement first-line supervisors to explore current approaches for responding to and investigating the crimes of violence against women, specifically domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking. The training is designed to increase the overall understanding of these crimes while instilling mentoring, training, and leadership skills. Throughout the interactive event, participants will set goals, share information, and develop practical, proactive strategies for immediate implementation in their agencies and communities. Applications to attend this training opportunity in November, along with additional information, can be found on the First-Line Supervisor Training website.

We encourage you to submit completed applications as soon as possible to be considered for the Fall events. For more information, please contact Michael Rizzo, Project Manager, at Rizzo@theiacp.org or call 1-800-The-IACP ext. 818.
