Intimate Partner Violence Intervention

Employs the National Network for Safe Communities' approach to identify and deter the most serious domestic violence offenders, reduce domestic violence, and reduce harm to victims. Through a partnership between law enforcement, community members, social service providers, and domestic violence victims’ advocates, the IPVI strategy intervenes early with low-level domestic violence offenders, puts them on notice of community intolerance for domestic violence and that further and more serious offending will be met with a meaningful legal response, and takes special steps to remove the most dangerous domestic violence offenders from the community. The strategy includes close partnership with domestic violence victims’ advocates to ensure that victims have access to safety and support structures and are not exposed to unintended harm.
