NNEDV is pleased to announce the launch of our new Toolkit for Law Enforcement & Legal Professionals on Understanding & Investigating Technology Misuse. This toolkit was developed to meet the needs of law enforcement, attorneys, court personnel, community corrections, and other professionals to better serve survivors of technology-facilitated abuse. It provides thorough guides and resources on evidence collection for some of the most common technologies misused by abusers and perpetrators.
Agencies across the country have communicated barriers, such as a lack of funds, that often prevent them from sending staff to in-person trainings for multiple days. We have also heard requests for more comprehensive resources on issues of technology abuse and evidence. We hope this toolkit will provide professionals working within the criminal and civil legal systems with resources to help them respond to the emerging issues that survivors are identifying and struggling with and in doing so improve both safety planning and accountability.
