There are a number of ways that the tools can be applied in the field. Ideally, an agency would seek to have the Protecting and Serving: Enhancing Law Enforcement Response to Children Exposed to Violence training curriculum for frontline police officers, then adopt the tools into practical use, including the protocols, and integrate the use of the materials agency-wide. Another option is for an agency to integrate the protocols and materials into the agency’s existing practices and approaches. A third option is for interested individual officers to incorporate the knowledge and practices encompassed within the tools into their practice and approaches in the field, while keeping with their agency’s existing protocols. Law enforcement professionals may reproduce, distribute, transmit, and share these tools for the purpose of identifying and responding to children exposed to violence. (From the document).
