The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) recently released a new training video providing an introduction to law enforcement agencies on safeguarding children of arrested parents.  The training outlines strategies to help law enforcement agencies implement a trauma-informed approach to safeguard children before, during, and after the arrest of a parent.  The online delivery aligns with the IACP/BJA Safeguarding Children of Arrested Parents Model Policy, which identifies policies and procedures that law enforcement can develop to minimize trauma to children during a parental arrest.
