  Annotation: This paper supports the Model Policy on Police Officer Domestic Violence established by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) National Law Enforcement Policy Center.
Abstract: The paper conveys the philosophy and development of the policy along with implementation requirements. For the purposes of the policy, “domestic violence” refers to any act of violence (threatened or actual) perpetrated by a police officer (on or off duty) or any police department employee upon his or her intimate partner. “Partner” refers to any individual (opposite or same sex) the officer has dated, cohabitated with, married or has a child in common. These definitions may be limited to the definitions in the laws of each State. The model policy and this paper are the culmination of an effort by the IACP, the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services and the Violence Against Women Office. The paper includes discussion of policy components, including prevention, education and training; early warning and intervention; incident response protocols; victim safety and protection; and post-incident administrative and criminal decisions.
