EVAWI has produced training materials and other resources, as well as collecting materials from across the country and around the world – to help professionals improve the criminal justice and community response to violence against women.

EVAWI developed the OnLine Training Institute (OLTI) to provide state-of-the art training on the criminal justice and community response to sexual assault. Training particularly focuses on those crimes committed by someone who is known to the victim (i.e., non-strangers). Participants in the OLTI work through training modules and then apply this newly acquired knowledge in realistic and interactive scenarios, as well as assessment methods such as quizzes, tests, and case studies.
EVAWI is working with a cadre of experts who can provide training in sexual assault response and investigation for law enforcement on a national level. These experts represent a diverse range of jurisdictions, agencies, and geographic areas (e.g., military, civilian, and campus communities).
