About the OVW Training and Technical Assistance Initiative
The primary purpose of the OVW Training and Technical Assistance Initiative (TA Initiative) is to provide direct technical assistance to existing and potential grantees and sub-grantees to enhance their efforts to successfully implement projects supported by OVW grant funds. OVW’s TA Initiative is designed to strengthen and build the capacity of civil and criminal justice system professionals and victim service providers across the nation to respond effectively to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking and foster partnerships among organizations that have not traditionally worked together to address these crimes.
About the OVW National Violence Against Women Law Enforcement Training and Technical Assistance Consortium
OVW seeks to establish a National Violence Against Women Law Enforcement Training and Technical Assistance Consortium (NLETC) to support the training and technical assistance (TTA) needs of state, tribal, territorial, and local law enforcement agencies, sworn officers, and civilian staff that will enhance and strengthen law enforcement responses to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking. The NLETC will also provide targeted TTA to tribal law enforcement on sex trafficking. The NLETC reflects OVW’s commitment to ensuring that law enforcement responses to and investigations of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking are victim-centered, can aid in successful prosecution, and empower victims to heal and achieve safety and justice.
OVW expects the NLETC to serve as the initial point of entry and clearinghouse for all law enforcement TTA needs of existing and potential OVW grantees and sub-grantees, with a focus on the following programs:
In addition to coordinating all law enforcement TTA requests for agencies serving a range of communities, including urban, suburban, rural, remote, and tribal, the NLETC is intended to provide rapid support and resources in response to time sensitive incidents in a community, and to be a leader in developing the next generation of expert law enforcement trainers. The NLETC will help identify, recruit, and develop law enforcement officers to be skilled trainers and mentors on the topics of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking cases. OVW is also interested in the NLETC developing trainings that could lead to a certification and/or be recognized by law enforcement agencies, police academies, and state-level officer standards and training organizations/boards/councils for continuing education credits or meeting annual training requirements on domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
In FY 2020, funds under the NLETC may be used to develop and deliver high-quality training, TA, and resources for OVW grantees, sub-grantees, and potential grantees on building law enforcement agency and officer capacity in responding to and investigating domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking that are trauma-informed, victim-centered, aid in successful prosecution, and support victim healing, safety, and justice. TTA may include but is not limited to:
