  Annotation: This report evaluates the law enforcement and prosecution components of the STOP Violence Against Women grant program authorized by the Violence Against Women Act of 1994.
Abstract: The report seeks to: (1) document the types of activities carried out by law enforcement and prosecution agencies under the STOP program; (2) examine how the Violence Against Women Act affected State legislation; (3) evaluate State-level efforts on training in violence against women; (4) evaluate the local implementation of STOP projects; and (5) determine the impact of local STOP-funded projects on victim safety and offender accountability. The evaluation includes analysis of: a 1995 survey of subgrantees and a national database of 1999 subgrantees; State laws pertaining to violence against women on an annual basis; State law enforcement training trends, prosecutor training projects, and training programs; local implementation of eight STOP-funded projects, including site visits, staff interviews, collection of project documentation, and participation in grant-funded activities; and data gathered from statistical analysis, case tracking, victim surveys, focus groups, and victim interviews involving two specialized units and two multi-agency team projects at the local level. The report concludes that, at the State level, the STOP program has had a significant impact on the extent and scope of law enforcement and prosecution training. In addition, it has influenced legislative activity; provided a vital source of funding for cities, counties, and States; and improved victim services. Notes, figures, tables, appendix
