TRAILER: Determining Predominant Aggressor & Self Defense



Presented in collaboration with the International Association of Chiefs of Police

Domestic violence calls are some of the most dangerous and complicated scenes that officers encounter. Responding officers must understand the context of these crimes and conduct thorough, evidence-based investigation to determine if self-defense was present, who acted as the predominant aggressor, and who should go to jail. Arresting the wrong party can have devastating consequences not only for the victim, but for the criminal justice system’s ability to hold the offender accountable.

Divided into six short video segments, complete with discussion guides and additional resources, this free training is geared towards Texas law enforcement but useful for any for any practitioners dedicated to eradicating violence against women.
