POLICING, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND SEXUAL ASSAULT: ACLU REPORT
Do police responders believe victims? Do they take reports of sexual violence seriously? If you call police will that trigger unwanted contact from child protection services? To find out the answers to those questions and more, the ACLU did a nationwide survey of domestic violence and sexual assault and the police response over a one month period last year.
Donna Coker, MSW, JD, and professor of law at University of Miami, helped author the report and will share those results with us. Professor Coker has carried out research that focuses on criminal law, gender and inequality, and she is a nationally recognized expert in domestic violence law and policy. Her extensive body of research includes economic vulnerability and intimate partner violence and gender and criminal law doctrine.
Join us Saturday as we talk about the ACLU report, “Responses from the Field: Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, and Policing.”
