This chapter presents & discusses a set of training materials for police departments aimed at helping police officers cope with victim-precipitated homicide. Materials focus on providing officers with a range of intervention strategies to attempt to reduce the risk associated with these situations for both the officer & the perpetrator. These strategies are intended to facilitate prevention & intervention. The focus here, however, will be directed toward the reactions of officers & units to victim-precipitated homicide & toward both intervention & postvention strategies to assist the officer & the unit in their recovery from this traumatic event. The area of practical training has been neglected in previous discussions. JA
