Victim Services are a key component to victim safety and empowerment, as well as public safety as a whole. However only a small percentage of U.S. law enforcement agencies have specialized units or dedicated victim assistance personnel. Through the Law Enforcement-Based Direct Victim Services and Technical Assistance Program (LEV Program), the Department of Justice (DOJ) Office on Victims of Crime (OVC) has provided funding for multiple law enforcement agencies to develop or enhance and sustain direct victim assistance service programs, to include enhanced coordination with community-based programs to serve the broader needs and rights of all crime victims.


IACP has a broad portfolio of victim centered initiatives focused on improving law enforcement response to victims of crime and is looking for a Project Manager to oversee the LEV Program as a key member of our team.



Under the direction of the Sr. Program Manager, the Project Manager will:

  • Manage IACP training and technical assistance projects as needed to include all aspects of logistical planning for trainings, meetings and on-site visits for grantee sites as well as project events;
  • Manage the day-to-day work on the Law Enforcement-Based Direct Victim Services and Technical Assistance Program (LEV Program) by building strong working relationships with law enforcement agency grantees and their respective community partners;

  • Provide day to day assistance to grantee sites in collaboration with project partners and consultants;
  • Assist with tracking, accounting and invoicing for grant expenditures in accordance with federal grant guidelines and agency policies;
  • With information gleaned from gathered material and project activities, develop comprehensive guides aimed at the development and enhancement of law-enforcement based victim services programs;
  • Assist with developing periodic progress reports for funding agency;
  • Maintain regular and clear communications with OVC, project partners, consultants, IACP staff members, and contacts at grantee sites regarding project deliverables;
  • Provide ongoing support for all project activities;
  • Additional duties as assigned.



  • Bachelor’s degree in a subject-relevant field. Minimum of three (3) years of relevant experience;
  • Experience working closely with law enforcement on training and policy as it relates to response to victims and support for officers; preference will be given to those with victim advocacy experience within a law enforcement agency   
  • A strong understanding of trauma informed, victim centered response to victims of crime through meaningful community collaboration;
  • Experience working with and/or developing multidisciplinary collaborative efforts to provide strong victim response;
  • Experience in project management/planning, preferably knowledge of managing federal grants;
  • Core knowledge and skill requirements include:
  • superior writing, editing and communication skills
