The Oregon Attorney General’s Sexual Assault Task Force is seeking applicants for our National Law Enforcement Training and Capacity Building Project (LETCBP), funded by the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) Grants to Encourage Arrest Program. The goal of the LETCBP is to provide high quality, discipline-specific training for Law Enforcement. The project will provide technical assistance to selected sites to identify and support the development of local experts in each state or region who will be able to help sustain a statewide or regional training program based on the LETCBP model and curricula.

In accordance with our OVW grant requirements, this project is open to Arrest grantee sites only.
The LETCBP uses a train-the-trainer model, and consists of 2.5 days of training. All training is provided to the host site free of charge, and is offered by the ORSATF’s professional law enforcement faculty. The first two days of training is provided to 6-7 trainers-in-training from your site, as well as to 45-50 additional law enforcement officers and 3-5 advocates. The third day will consist of a ½ day workshop with the trainers-in-training only, as we work to adapt the LETCBP training curriculum to your site. At the end of the LETCBP, your site will be equipped with the tools necessary (curriculum, training institute models, etc.) to implement a law enforcement training program in your community, one that has been tailored to the particular needs of your community.
The LETCBP offers training to officers of various experience levels. Sites will have the choice of 2 of the 3 following topics for the training:
-Non-Stranger Sexual Assault Response and Investigation: A Training for Law Enforcement
-Identifying Sex Offenders Tools for the Interview & Interrogation: An Advanced Law Enforcement Training for the Investigation of Sexual Assault
-Victim Interviewing and Crime Scene Response: Interactive Law Enforcement Workshops for the Investigation of Sexual Assault
We will open a solicitation for applications for this training in fall of 2013.
