...Title

Police Department Duty Manual Updates Status Report.  (Police)

...Recommendations

Accept the status report on the implementation of updates made to the Police Department’s Duty Manual for the purposes of improving the Police Department’s interactions with survivors of domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault, human trafficking, and other vulnerable populations, including 1) requiring officers to respond to and investigate all calls for service for domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault, and human trafficking for potential high lethality and write a police report if a crime occurred, and 2) ensuring a trauma-informed approach to an officer’s response by providing survivors with access to an in-person advocate and/or a referral to such advocate by telephone, pamphlet, or resource card before the officer leaves the scene regardless if the survivor asks for the referral services.
