Cyber Abuse Project

The Cyber Abuse Project (CAP), a project of Break the Cycle and California Coalition Against Sexual Assault, addresses the use/misuse of technology in sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking (including cyber stalking) cases. CAP resources aim to support the work of criminal justice professionals, including law enforcement, campus safety staff, school resource officers, and school administrators in their response to these types of cases. CAP is supported by Grant Number 2016-TA-AX-K070 awarded by the Office on Violence Against Women, U.S. Department of Justice. The opinions, findings, conclusions, and recommendations expressed in this program are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the U.S. Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women.
