Part 2 of the Battered Women's Justice Project's CCR Problem-Solving Series, this webinar explores the role and responsibilities of law enforcement in their initial response to domestic violence cases. Viewers can learn how officers understand, consider, and implement legal concepts such as mandatory/preferred arrest, predominant aggressor and self-defense. Presenters discuss how dual arrest might occur and the difficulties they pose for victims and advocates by focusing on the subsequent investigation of domestic violence cases, like complex cases that include coercion, abuse and/or stalking.
