Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $804,300)
This study will be a formative evaluation of victim service programs funded through the Office for Victims of Crimes (OVCs) Law Enforcement-Based Victim Services (LEV) program. This is a first step toward an outcome evaluation of different strategies for law enforcement (LE) delivery of victim services. Through a partnership with International Association of Chiefs of Police, the applicant proposes to accomplish the following specific objectives: develop an inventory and typology of all LEV programs, develop logic models and identify core components of a subset of sites, conduct evaluability assessments of ten sites, develop recommendations for future outcome evaluation, and develop an implementation guide and fidelity measures. They will use a mixed-methods design that includes input from OVC and the LEV training and technical assistance team, a web survey of all LEV sites, telephone and in-person interviews with LEV staff in a subset of sites, and interviews with victims who have received assistance.
