The National Center on Protection Orders and Full Faith & Credit (NCPOFFC) facilitates the implementation of the full faith and credit provision of  the Violence Against Women Act, which directs states, tribal nations and territories to recognize and enforce orders for protection issued in other jurisdictions. The NCPOFFC provides a number of resources for law enforcement, prosecutors, judges, advocates, and victims, including an emergency protection from abuse order.
