State and local governments across the country are facing reduced budgets. Law enforcement agencies and correctional entities are experiencing residual effects through unprecedented staff reductions and declining resources. These reductions affect community services, including public safety, and impact the criminal justice system. Unfortunately, community expectations do not decline with the economy. Agencies are challenged to find new and creative ways do more with less. One way is to share resources and drive strategic crime control together.
The Illinois Law Enforcement Training and Standards Board Executive Institute along with the Illinois Family Violence Coordinating Councils, the Illinois Coalition Against Domestic Violence and the International Association of Chiefs of Police are pleased to announce two offerings of the prestigious IACP National Law Enforcement Leadership Institute on Violence Against Women for Illinois law enforcement executives who are first or second in command of a police agency.
This institute, created in partnership with the Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women, is designed to be highly interactive and will focus on assisting law enforcement leaders in developing a practical, pro-active plan to increase agency effectiveness in responding to and investigating the crimes of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and human trafficking.
