Abstract

The Violence Against Women Act (1994) is a multifaceted piece of legislation with the primary goal of reducing cases of intimate partner violence. In order to induce this reduction, the Office on Violence Against Women was created within the Department of Justice to facilitate several different grant programs to ensure law enforcement and their communities are capable of handling cases of intimate partner violence effectively. One such program, the STOP program (Services, Training, Officers, & Prosecutors), encompasses many aspects of the intended outputs of VAWA, and this presentation serves as a proposal to truly study the effectiveness of this program.
