Annotation: This document describes the Community Policing to Combat Domestic Violence program, created by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services to fund innovative community policing efforts aimed at curbing domestic violence.
Abstract: Up to $10 million in grants is available for police departments that have exemplary community policing practices and are interested in receiving funding for the purposes of integrating domestic violence strategies in their community policing plans, establishing coordinated community responses to domestic assault, designing early intervention efforts, focusing on police responses to domestic incidents, eliminating victim-blaming policies, and using comprehensive approaches to create long-term accountability for the perpetrator. All State, local, Indian tribal, and other public and private law enforcement agencies committed to using community policing techniques are eligible to apply for grants; nonprofit, nongovernmental victim-service providers, shelters, and community service groups must collaborate with a law enforcement agency to obtain a grant. Applicants must apply under one of the following specific areas: domestic violence training with a community policing philosophy, problem-solving and community-based programs, or changing police organizations to be more responsive to domestic violence. Application requirements and forms are included. 5 appendixes
