Learning about the Intimate Partner Violence Intervention (IPVI) Strategy

The IPVI Strategy is a multi-agency response to domestic violence being piloted with police agencies in the US that draws largely from research by the NNSC's director David Kennedy. The IPVI Strategy seeks to remove the burden of preventing IPV from victims; intervene early in the repeat victimisation process; make it clear to even low-level offenders that IPV will not be tolerated; and take special action to deter and, if necessary, incapacitate the most dangerous offenders.

The seminar will focus on outlining the IPVI Strategy, specifically the ideas and research underpinning it, how it works, and the results of trials from across the US. The formal presentations will be followed opportunities for questions and answers, and discussion of the potential value of the IPVI Strategy to the Australian context.


Rachel Teicher is the Director of the Intimate Partner Violence Intervention (IPVI) Strategy at the National Network for Safe Communities. She is responsible for assisting with the management and implementation of the IPVI work. In her role, Ms. Teicher provides direct technical assistance and support for the National Network's partner jurisdictions, which includes strategic advising and data management to sites implementing IPVI and sites interested in reducing serious intimate partner violence.

Kyle Ott is a Data Analyst with the National Network for Safe Communities. He is responsible for conducting analysis and generating regular data reports—both for the National Network's partner jurisdictions and for use by the strategic operations and policy team—to illuminate crime trends and support innovations to core strategies. He will also develop data management and analysis protocols that support the ongoing implementation of the National Network's crime reduction strategies in partner sites.
