This study is intended to capture the feelings and perceptions of metro police officers 'on the ground' about issues of victim empowerment and trauma management. The findings of this study were presented to a national workshop for Metro Police Departments (hosted by the CSVR) on 3rd and 4th December, 2002. The workshop was mainly attended by the MPD managers and councilors, and their reactions to the findings are discussed later in the report.
