About this Event

The Safe & Together Institute is pleased to announce the first international summit on officer-involved domestic violence (OIDV). With data that suggests that 2 out of 5 officers may have issues with domestic violence, OIDV represents a unique and challenging problem for police departments, survivors, advocates, and the wider community. Police officers, who choose to perpetrate abuse against family members, are equipped with access to weapons, knowledge, status and skills that often increase their ability to control and isolate their partner. Their victims often do not feel like they can access the usual resources available for survivors. A lack of policy and consequences can often embolden police perpetrators.

OIDV has been associated with other major issues including civil rights violations, excessive force, on the job harassment, sexual violence, extremism and other forms of criminality. OIDV impacts its immediate victims, the victims of similar crimes, civilians, co workers and the integrity of law enforcement. OIDV erodes public safety and national security. In order for us to restore trust we must address police as perpetrators and their impact on victims of crimes, justice system and public trust.

For this summit, the Safe & Together Institute has gathered together global experts in OIDV and police criminality to discuss how we can address this issue, create accountability and restore trust in policing.

Anyone doing work with families is invited to join us in learning more about this issue and what we can do collectively as individuals, organizations and systems to address it.

As a result of attending this event, you will learn:

  • How OIDV impacts police families, civilians, co workers and how it erodes the integrity of police responses, evidence and judicial outcomes;
  • From law enforcement experts, survivors, advocates, legal experts, and researchers how we can face this systemic injustice and together, craft policy, law, practices, police culture, screen for violence, create accountability and prevent criminality;
  • About how officer wellness and safety are impacted by OIDV; and
  • How to use a perpetrator pattern-based approach to identify police perpetrators and create accountability for patterns of manipulation of systems and authority, and concurrent criminality including sexual violence, extremism.

Who should attend:

  • Law Enforcement officers & leaders
  • Law enforcement social workers
  • Child Protection/Welfare social workers and leaders
  • Policy makers
  • Family Court professionals
  • Attorneys and legal representatives
  • Women’s sector/domestic violence victim advocates
  • And anyone else interested in working with police officers better.
