"The National Prevention Toolkit on Officer Involved Domestic Violence is a project of the Law Enforcement Families Partnership (LEFP) at the Institute for Family Violence Studies within Florida State University’s College of Social Work. The Toolkit is part of a broad-based effort to prevent violence in the homes of criminal justice families and to support healthy families, agencies, and communities. Please note that this Toolkit is not a batterer intervention program and is not for use when violence has already occurred.
The goals of the Toolkit are:
- To educate officers about the dynamics and impact of officer-involved domestic violence,
- To support a law enforcement culture that prioritizes prevention efforts and officer/family wellness and also disapproves of officer-committed domestic violence,
- To encourage officers to ask for help when they need it before violence occurs, and
- To disseminate a multimedia campaign reinforcing the message: 'Preventing Violence Begins at Home.'
All criminal justice agencies and officers are invited to participate in this free project. The two components are Training and Resources."
