Identifying and Securing Funding for Victim Response Efforts
Documenting and Advancing Promising Practices in Law Enforcement Victim Support: Identifying and Securing Funding for Victim Response Efforts
Publication Date: 2023
This publication, initiated by the International Association of Chiefs of Police through an award by the Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) office, states that effective victim response requires multilayered strategies to meet crime victims’ individual needs. To carry out these strategies, law enforcement agencies and their partners must identify and secure appropriate funding. Funding ensures that victim response and services are consistent, available when needed, and sustainable; by strengthening their abilities to write grant applications and manage funding, law enforcement agencies strengthen their capacities for effective victim response.
