Abstract: The police officers application and scope of GBV criminality is mostly related to the sexual violence only; their attitude towards women and girls was found to be not positive in that they see women and girls as subordinate to men and boys; viewing some of the victims as suspects, blaming them for the violence they experienced and even being the perpetrators in some cases; it can be argued that the police officers do not have positive attitude towards preventing and mitigating GBV crimes. Thus, the police officers under study, especially those who are directly related to GBV in the study area do not have an attitude that enhances the report rate and decrease the prevalence rate of GBV. Finally, the study recommends the need for further investigation on issues related to police officers attitude towards victims and gender difference in the attitude of police officers towards GBV. Trainings should also be given for police officers in order to improve their understanding of the scope and criminality of GBV, their attitude towards victims, women and their attitudes about GBV.
