|Factors shaping the cooperation of police with other sectors: The example of domestic violence
|Policing is a profession with a significant human factor component, and police psychology has contributed to its structure to improve police relations throughout various fields of crime prevention and intervention. Within police and in police-client interaction, the management of the human factor has become quite elaborate. However, in the chal-lenging field of police cooperation with other professions in domestic violence manage-ment, there is a lot of uncharted land. The EU-funded research project IMPRODOVA sought to address this topic in an empirical approach via document analyses and expert interviews. IMPRODOVA’s main objective was to improve the cooperation and perfor-mance of frontline responder ecosystems to high-impact domestic violence considering existing heterogeneities across different settings. Its major results show, how communica-tion, vision and leadership, and organisational learning are the key areas to be reinforced to support police interagency cooperation. Outputs for police practice (including an open access training website) are discussed in the following. Also, recommendations for police multi-professional and inter-agency cooperation are presented.
