New in­ti­mate part­ner train­ing for police

Tri-County Vanguard - - NEWS -

A new train­ing pro­gram to help police bet­ter re­spond to in­ci­dents of in­ti­mate part­ner vi­o­lence is be­ing given to police across the prov­ince.

The pro­gram will help of­fi­cers with as­sess­ing risk, in­ves­ti­ga­tion and ar­rest pro­to­cols, rec­og­niz­ing the signs of abuse or in­juries that are not al­ways ob­vi­ous, sup­port­ing chil­dren on scene and emer­gency pro­tec­tion or­ders.

Jus­tice Min­is­ter Mark Furey says it’s im­por­tant police of­fi­cers are pro­vided with the train­ing they need to deal pro­fes­sion­ally and effectively with vic­tims and their chil­dren, who are of­ten in the house when in­ci­dents of abuse oc­cur.

Six train-the-trainer ses­sions are be­ing held dur­ing the next two months. Of­fi­cers from the RCMP, mu­nic­i­pal and mil­i­tary police will re­ceive the train­ing.
