Intimate Partner Violence Intervention
Despite years of efforts, traditional criminal legal responses to intimate partner violence (IPV) have fallen short of improving victim safety and increasing offender accountability. Building on coordination models, the Intimate Partner Violence Intervention (IPVI) employs the National Network for Safe Communities’ (NNSC) evidence-based focused deterrence approach to identify and deter the most serious IPV offenders, reduce IPV, and reduce harm to victims. Through a partnership of law enforcement, victim advocates, social service providers, and community members, IPVI addresses all intimate partner violence offenders known to the criminal justice system. One of the structure’s essential elements is the ability to focus on offenders at early stages of offending, before violence or patterns of behavior escalate, offering community-based outreach, support, and messaging about the potential consequences of continued IPV offending. Through this approach, jurisdictions are able to establish themselves as the entity responsible for addressing the violence, thus shifting the burden of action off the victim. The NNSC and partners in High Point, North Carolina began a pilot project of the IPVI in 2009 which lead to dramatic reductions in IPV homicides and victim injuries. Since then, IPVI has been implemented in diverse jurisdictions nationwide, with many early indicators of success. This webinar will focus on the principles behind IPVI, how it works, and the essential steps that jurisdictions can take to successfully implement this innovative initiative.

Hand in Hand: Law Enforcement Serving in Order to Protect
There is an unspoken expectation that if a victim reports a crime, that the victim must definitely participate in the investigation and conviction of that crime. However, what is often misunderstood, misinterpreted, or simply forgotten is that victims endure many mental, physical, and systemic barriers that impede their ability to cooperate with law enforcement and other purveyors of criminal justice. It is vital that officers recognize these obstacles and have strategies in place to circumvent these complications in order to support victims and carry out effective investigations. This webinar will explore the reasons why victims cannot/do not participate, how to work cases without victims, and to highlight the importance of victim advocacy.
