ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The Sexual Assault Family Violence Investigator Course (SAFVIC) is designed to provide Texas law enforcement officers and 911 dispatchers with the tools they need to effectively investigate, handle, and prevent sexual assault and family violence calls. SAFVIC is funded by a grant from the Criminal Justice Division, Office of the Governor, and the National Violence Against Women Office. SAFVIC was developed by a statewide steering committee composed of representatives from law enforcement, prosecution, and victim services. The SAFVIC Program uses a network of certified trainers to deliver our training’s on a local basis, thus enabling more officers and telecommunicators across the state access to this very important training.
