Welcome to the VALOR Project!

Background

In the absence of law enforcement-specific training, military models are increasingly being introduced to fill this knowledge gap. While fundamentally sound, there is insufficient law enforcement data to determine whether military knowledge translation meets law enforcement needs.

The purpose of the VALOR (Violence Against Law Officer Research) Project is to develop an actionable data set identifying specific law enforcement systems issues and training interventions, thereby:

  1. Empowering officers with the knowledge to improve survival, and 
  2. Providing law enforcement executives and policy makers with the tools to make reasoned, educated practice decisions.
This website was developed to serve as a common point for data collection and information dissemination. On these pages, you will find information about ongoing VALOR Project studies, previous VALOR Project publications, and selected military publications which have potential implications for law enforcement operations involving care under fire. You will also find a link to the Law Enforcement Near Miss Database.

Any information (articles, video and audio recordings, etc.) found on this site is believed to be in the public domain, and is disseminated for educational purposes only. Any medical tactics techniques and procedures should be discussed with, and approved by, your department medical director.
