An impact evaluation of the STOP (Services, Training, Officers, Prosecutors) Violence Against Women grants program funded with Federal grants under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) of 1994 used data from two samples of representatives of law enforcement, prosecution, and court programs to provide victim services. Programs provided a wide variety of services to victims of sexual assault and domestic violence at many stages of case processing. Findings indicated that STOP funds substantially improved the lives of victims and the criminal justice system response to victims.
