Since 2004, the Improving Criminal Justice Response program has been successfully implemented by the Alliance and its partners. The four overarching goals for the program are: 1) strengthen support and advocacy for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and human trafficking; 2) enhance judicial handling of cases of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and human trafficking; 3) enhance law enforcement response to domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and human trafficking; and 4) enhance and revitalize the coordinated community response to domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and human trafficking. These goals are met through providing wrap-around services, training and deepening relationships with key partners.
