Officer Perpetrated Domestic Violence: Best Practices in Assisting Survivors – Virtual Training
Audience: KCSDV Member Program Advocates and Staff Only
Date and Time:
Wednesday, May 12, 2021, 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM (Part One)
Thursday, May 13, 2021, 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM (Part Two)
According to the International Association of Chiefs of Police, domestic violence is believed to be at least as prevalent among law enforcement as it is among civilians. While advocates are familiar with the dynamics of power and control, special considerations must be taken into account when the abuser is an officer. This training will explore the risks posed by officer-abusers, prepare advocates to make specialized safety plans, and propose policy recommendations to assist programs when navigating these situations with survivors.
- Identify a clear understanding of “militarized masculinity” and its role in Officer Perpetrated Domestic Violence
- Identify the unique risks of Officer Perpetrated Domestic Violence
- Implement skills for specialized advocacy when the abuser is an officer
- Build agency capacity to serve survivors of officer-abusers
