Hawaii Office of the Attorney General
Established by the Violence Against Women Act of 1994, the STOP Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Program seeks to develop and implement law enforcement and prosecution strategies to effectively decrease violent crimes against women. These grants also help to develop and enhance services provided to the victims of violent crimes.
In Hawaii, the Office of the Attorney General, Crime and Prevention and Justice Assistance Division is responsible for coordinating VAWA funds with local agencies. Funds through VAWA support Hawaii communities in their efforts to develop and strengthen effective law enforcement and prosecution strategies to combat violent crimes against women and to develop and strengthen victim services in cases involving violent crimes against women. More information is available in the Hawaii 2015-2017 STOP Implementation Plan at: http://ag.hawaii.gov/cpja/files/2013/01/VAWA-Implementation-Plan-FY-2015-2017.pdf
