Law Enforcement & Legal Professionals

As law enforcement and legal professionals, young people often first encounter you when they're in crisis. You need to be prepared with the skills to sensitively and knowledgeably respond before a victim comes to you. Break the Cycle's trainers will ensure your staff is:

  • Knowledgeable about the dynamics of dating violence and its impact on the victim.
  • Ready to provide an informative, empowering response to all young people experiencing abuse, including educating young people on their legal rights.
  • Prepared to make referrals to local service providers that can meet the ongoing needs of youth.
  • Up-to-date on federal and state laws that impact your ability to do your job.
  • Trained on how your job might change when dealing with youth vs. adults, such as confidentiality laws and collecting evidence of technological abuse.
