On Tuesday October 28th, the National Law Enforcement Leadership Initiative on Violence Against Women will hold a focus group on firearms and domestic violence at the IACP’s Annual Conference and Expo. The focus group seeks to collect information to create a national action plan on firearms and domestic violence to ultimately prevent domestic violence related homicide, suicide, and familicide. Through facilitated discussion, participants will discuss effective practices related to firearms and domestic violence and existing domestic violence firearm prohibitions and protection order firearms prohibitions and identify tools, training and support needed for local, state, federal, and tribal law enforcement.
We encourage you to include the focus group on your conference agenda. The meeting is being held on Tuesday morning, 9:00AM – 10:30AM in room W304E of the Orange County Convention Center. Be part of the conversation and have your voice included in a national agenda to reduce domestic violence homicides.
