In June 2014, the IACP will be holding the Vermont Law Enforcement Leadership Institute on Violence Against Women in Burlington, VT. With support from the Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), this transformative opportunity will be focused on assisting Vermont law enforcement leaders 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 Vermont Law Enforcement Leadership Institute on Violence Against Women is a four-day event and an opportunity for Vermont law enforcement executives (first or second in command) from across the state to learn the latest strategies and tools to address a spectrum of 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 Vermont executives to meet with colleagues from their state 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 June 2014, along with additional information, can be found on the IACP Institute website.
We encourage Vermont law enforcement executives to submit completed applications and supporting documents as soon as possible to be considered for the June 2014 event. For more information, please contact Michael Rizzo, Project Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-800-The-IACP ext. 818.
