The first-ever Domestic Violence Homicide Prevention Demonstration Initiative grant awards to 12 cities and counties totaling $2.3 million. These models use a short list of screening questions to identify victims who may be in fatally abusive relationships. Once at-risk victims or offenders are identified, law enforcement, prosecutors, courts, and service providers can take action to protect victims and their families. This team of responders can search for open warrants, make arrests, connect victims with services, and use pretrial conditions to keep offenders in custody.
