Retired OPP Officer Teena Stoddart joins 10-5 The Official Podcast of the OPP Association to discuss violence link training. 

The training is based on education, intervention, and prevention for professions who work with victims of violent crime, providing evidenced based research on violence link to help front line workers recognize high risk situations. 

Barriers, challenges and risk factors that prevent victims from leaving, and provide options to front line workers to help victims overcome those barriers, challenges and risk factors, as well as violent crimes such as partner assault, elder abuse, human trafficking,  gang violence, and terrorism are covered in this violence link training discussion.
