International OIDV Summit
May 5, 2021 @ 9:00 AM – May 6, 2021 @ 1:00 PM EDT
RESTORING TRUST: ENDING OFFICER INVOLVED DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
The Safe & Together Institute is pleased to announce the first international summit on officer-involved domestic violence (OIDV). With data that suggests that 2 out of 5 officers may have issues with domestic violence, OIDV represents a unique and challenging problem for police departments, survivors, advocates, and the wider community. Police officers, who choose to perpetrate abuse against family members, are equipped with access to weapons, knowledge, status and skills that often increase their ability to control and isolate their partner. Their victims often do not feel like they can access the usual resources available for survivors. A lack of policy and consequences can often embolden police perpetrators.
