institutions (procedures and practices) to increase their ability to combat crime
and insecurity in El Salvador, as well as enhance the public perception of these
government institutions.

On Track
During much of the reporting period, the USG’s major Rule of Law (ROL) Activity to address goals 1 and 2 was under procurement. To avoid a lapse in programming, the USG signed three grants with local organizations to support critical PfG activities until the ROL award was signed on March 4. Through the grants, several training sessions were provided to justice sector personnel indifferent areas such as mediation skills for court officials to support the recently created Court’s Annexed Mediation Centers and training to specialized units of the Attorney General’s office on special methodologies to plan and investigate cases. Through the same grants, psychological attention and crisis intervention were given to victims at USG funded victims centers. During this period, 400 victims were assisted for domestic violence, 1,210 children were treated in play therapy centers, and 227 victims were assisted for sexual abuse. A sample study was carried out in one victims center located in Ciudad Delgado, where it showed that from November 1 to the end of February, a total of 99 cases were initiated for domestic violence all cases were presented in the courts, and 97 of them, representing almost 98% of the total, resulted in convictions. A baseline study done in 2009 in a similar center showed that out of 323 cases received, just one case was initiated. The Technical Unit of the Justice Sector created a committee with representatives from all justice sector institutions to plan the Partnership for Growth Activities for Goals 1-2. The Committee drafted a matrix with the GOES priorities for the first year of the new ROL project. The five year, $21.4 million activity was signed at the beginning of March and directly supports PFG Security goals 1, 2 and 9.
