National Review of Community Policing Partnerships for Domestic Violence

Melissa M. Reuland, Police Executive Research Forum

ABSTRACT
The Police Executive Research Forum received funds from the Community Oriented Policing Services Office to conduct a national review of promising practices in three types of police-community partnerships that address domestic violence: Multi-jurisdictional Task Forces, Coordinated Community Responses and Partnerships to Respond. Our national survey of COPS grantees and others identified through a snowball sample explores the nature function and impact of these police-community partnerships. Specifically, for each partnership type, the presentation will address present roles and functions of participant agencies; the goals of the partnerships and how well they have been achieved; and barriers and solutions that influence and effect progress toward these goals.
