Description: 

The Statewide Training on Violence Against Women Program (VAWT) was created by the Sexual Assault Family Violence Investigators Course (SAFVIC) in 2010 to create a statewide conference for law enforcement and telecommunication personnel. The purpose of the VAWT program is to assist in developing and strengthening effective law enforcement and prosecution strategies to combat violent crimes against women and to develop and strengthen victim services in such cases. The program was initially funded in 2010 through the American Recovery andReinvestment Act of 2009, S.T.O.P Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Program Grant from the Criminal Justice Division (CJD) of the Texas Governor’s Office.

The Statewide Training on Violence Against Women Program (VAWT) held its first successful conference in February 2011.  With subsequent funding from the Criminal Justice Division of the Texas Governor’s Office and the S.T.O.P ViolenceAgainst Women Act (VAWA) Program Grant, the program coordinated additional successful conferences in San Antonio in July 2012 and in Irving in 2013.
