The training video, The Crime of Domestic Violence was developed by the International Association of Chiefs of Police to present law enforcement and partners with information to strengthen the response to victims of domestic violence.
The crime of domestic violence is complex and law enforcement officers often feel frustrated and discouraged when responding. Officers provide as much support to victims as possible, but when equipped with a better understanding of the nuances and dynamics of this intimate partner crime, they can more effectively address victims’ needs and hold offenders accountable. Segment 2 gives officers tools to respond when on-scene.
