In August 2014, the IACP’s National Law Enforcement Leadership Initiative on Violence Against Women will be holding the 17th National Law Enforcement Leadership Institute on Violence Against Women in Kansas City, Missouri. With support from the Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), this transformative opportunity will be focused on assisting law enforcement in developing practical, pro-active plans to increase agency effectiveness responding to and investigating the crimes of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, and stalking.
The 17th 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 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 executives from across the nation 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 August 2014, along with additional information, can be found on the IACP Leadership Institute on Violence Against Women website.
We encourage you to submit completed applications and supporting documents as soon as possible to be considered for the summer 2014 event. For more information, please contact Michael Rizzo, Project Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-800-The-IACP ext. 818.
