The LAP is a two-pronged intervention process that features a research-based lethality screening tool and an accompanying protocol referral that provides direction for officers to initiate appropriate action based on the results of the screening process. The process begins when an officer arrives at the scene of a domestic violence call.
”The LAP is a multi-pronged intervention program that identifies victims of domestic violence who are at risk of being seriously injured or killed by their intimate partners and immediately connects them to the domestic violence service provider in their area. LAP is the only lethality assessment program in the nation that makes use of a research-based screening tool and accompanying referral protocol, and it enables law enforcement and domestic violence programs to work hand-in-hand to actively engage high-risk victims who are, otherwise, unlikely to seek the support of domestic violence intervention services. “
