Civil Protection Orders from the Inside Out: A Look at What Courts and Law Enforcement Can Do to Enhance their Use and Efficacy
Civil Protection Orders have been one of the most effective tools for promoting victim and community safety since their origin in the 1980s. Yet, much could be done to expand their use and ensure their purpose is being fulfilled. In this webinar, participants will have an opportunity to reflect on the shared values behind protection orders, consider the role of victim autonomy in issuing relief, identify steps for issuing clear and comprehensive orders, examine how courts and law enforcement can collaborate on strategies for serving orders, and learn how greater accountability can be built into the systemic response to domestic violence. The importance of and tools for addressing firearms in cases of domestic violence will also be explored.

Part I of this webinar will focus on strategies for issuing and serving protection orders, including provisions for obtaining firearms from respondents. Part II of this webinar will focus on strategies for enforcing protection orders, including tools for making the protection order system more accessible.
