The SAFVIC program is funded by a grant from the Criminal Justice Division of the Governor’s Office and the National Violence Against Women Office. This program is administered by the Texas Municipal Police Association (TMPA) with input from a statewide steering committee comprised of representatives from telecommunications, law enforcement, prosecution, medical services and victim services. In 2008, SAFVIC for TCPs was developed in an effort to expand the training to Telecommunication Professionals who are often the vital link between the victim and the responding police officers.
