RE: The Family Violence Indicator Computer-Based Training Program

Dear Colleague:

Enclosed is the Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement's (OCSE) new Family Violence (FV) Indicator Computer-Based Training (CBT) Program. As you know, the FV Indicator is an important component of the Federal Case Registry as well as each State Case Registry (SCR). The training program presents general information about the Federal Parent Locator Service (FPLS), as well as the components of family violence -- domestic violence and child abuse. In addition, the program sets out detailed information regarding:

  • How the FV Indicator is used
  • State approaches to placement, removal, and impact; and
  • The override process that permits the disclosure of a protected person’s data to an appropriate State court

This training program is interactive and, while it is designed for individual use, State trainers may also find it a meaningful tool for group training sessions.

Thank you for your continued efforts on behalf of America’s children.

Sincerely,

David Gray Ross
Commissioner
Office of Child Support Enforcement
