Upcoming Oregon Leadership Institute on Violence Against Women Crimes

In August 2015, the IACP, in collaboration with the Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training will be holding the Oregon Law Enforcement Leadership Institute on Violence Against Women in Salem, OR. With support from the Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), this transformative opportunity will be focused on assisting Oregon 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, and stalking.

The Oregon Law Enforcement Leadership Institute on Violence Against Women, being held August 18th through 21st, 2015, is an opportunity for Oregon 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 Oregon 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 Oregon 2015, along with additional information, can be found on the IACP Institute website. Completed application packets are due by May 8th, 2015.

We encourage Oregon law enforcement executives to submit completed applications and supporting documents as soon as possible to be considered for the August 2015 event. For more information, please contact Michael Rizzo, Project Manager, at rizzo@theiacp.org or call 1-800-The-IACP ext. 818.
