Agency Self-Assessment Tool for Law Enforcement Victim Support
Agency Self-Assessment Tool for Law Enforcement Victim Support: Documenting and Advancing Promising Practices in Law Enforcement Victim Support
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, addresses victim-centered, trauma-informed approaches to crime. This approach can support victim recovery and engagement with the criminal justice system. These strategies enhance victim and community safety while helping law enforcement solve and prevent crime. The Agency Self-Assessment Tool for Law Enforcement Victim Support is designed to assist law enforcement agencies in reviewing practices related to victim response - specifically the integration of victim-centered, trauma-informed practices into the overall operating philosophy and culture of the agency - through reviews of policy and practices and interviews with sworn and professional staff.
