Law enforcement-based victim services are most effectively incorporated into agencies when clear roles and responsibilities are established and understood. These depend on models of service provision and partnerships – both internal and external to the agency. Jurisdiction-specific statutes can affect protections that victim services personnel can and cannot offer when serving victims and co-victims.
Information from this webinar can help participants understand the following:
- Service provision models
- Victim services personnel role parameters
- Legal statutes related to communication with victims and co-victims

About the National Policing Institute: Formerly known as the National Police Foundation, the National Policing Institute’s mission is to pursue excellence in policing through innovation and science. It is the oldest nationally-known, non-profit, non-partisan, and non-membership-driven organization dedicated to improving America’s most noble profession – policing.
The National Policing Institute has been on the cutting edge of police innovation for over 50 years since it was established by the Ford Foundation as a result of the President’s Commission on the Challenge of Crime in a Free Society (1967) and the related conclusions of the Kerner and Eisenhower Commissions, taking place during the same era.
