Coordinated Community Response

A coordinated community response involves police, prosecutors, probation officers, battered women's advocates, counselors, health care providers, and judges in developing and implementing polices and procedures that improve interagency coordination and lead to more uniform responses to domestic violence cases. * For more information, see VAWnet's resources on Coordinated Community Response.

The Murder at Home Project is a groundbreaking effort of the California Women's Law Center to transform criminal justice, community and media responses to intimate murder and intimate violence to ensure that these crimes are taken seriously and addressed appropriately. Their report below is one resource that addresses a broad community-level response to domestic violence homicide.
