Frequently Asked Questions

Q:  HOW WAS THIS APP DEVELOPED?


A: In 2015, NCVAN authored a hard copy of various topics specific to law enforcement response to topics ranging from Crime Victim Rights/Compensation; Homicide and Trauma; Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault; Stalking; and Child Abuse and Neglect. It was determined that the Guide needed to enter into 21st Century technology which would allow for the accessibility of information at the user’s fingertips when training opportunities were not readily available. NCVAN endeavored to develop a Quick Series Smartphone Guide App that was primarily designed for law enforcement’s use on the topics that are deemed significant to today’s traumatic crisis and violent crimes. The App/Guide allows for quick availability of National, State and community resources even at 3:00 a.m.! The App/Guide validated the necessity for those professionals to have access no matter where or when the resource was needed…all that’s required is a Smartphone.
