Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $180,042)

The key goal of this research project is to examine how investigative strategies affect the successful prosecution of IPV cases. More precisely the project will examine the extent to which (1) the thoroughness and timeliness of the officer's investigation, (2) whether a follow-up investigation was performed, and (3) whether a local police presence is available affect case outcomes and the reasons for case outcomes. The key objective of this research project is to create an empirically-based investigation guide for law-enforcement personnel to increase the likelihood of full and successful prosecution of IPV cases. ca/ncf
