Agency Self-Assessment Tool for Law Enforcement Victim Support
Publication Date: February 2023
Victim-centered, trauma-informed approaches to crime can support victim recovery and engagement with the criminal justice system. These approaches enhance victim and community safety while helping law enforcement solve and prevent crime. The Agency Self-Assessment Tool for Law Enforcement Victim Support is designed to assist law enforcement agencies in reviewing practices related to victim response—specifically the integration of victim-centered, trauma-informed practices into the overall operating philosophy and culture of the agency.
