In March 2014, the IACP’s National Law Enforcement Leadership Initiative on Violence Against Women will be holding the Ohio Law Enforcement Leadership Institute on Violence Against Women in Columbus, Ohio. With support from the Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), and held in collaboration with the Ohio Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP), this transformative opportunity will be focused on assisting Ohio law enforcement in developing practical, pro-active plans to increase agency effectiveness in responding to and investigating the crimes of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, and stalking.
The Ohio 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) from across the state to learn the latest strategies and tools to address a spectrum a violence against women crimes. 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 Ohio executives to gather information about innovative initiatives, share promising practices, develop strategies for immediate implementation, and set goals to strengthen response to these crimes. Applications to attend the Institute in March 2014, along with additional information, can be found on the IACP Institute website as well as the OACP website.
We encourage you to submit completed applications and supporting documents as soon as possible to be considered for the Spring 2014 event. For more information, please contact Michael Rizzo, Project Manager, at Rizzo@theiacp.org or call 1-800-The-IACP ext. 818.
