The Domestic Violence Council’s (DVC) mission is to act in an advisory capacity to the Board of Supervisors to assure safety and restoration for victims of domestic violence, cessation of the violence, and accountability for batterers.
The Domestic Violence Council will do this by:
- Improving coordination among agencies, departments, courts, members of the community and victims in matters of family violence and abuse;
- Promoting effective prevention, intervention and treatment techniques that will be developed based upon research and data collection;
- Improving the response to domestic violence and abuse in order to reduce incidents thereof; and
- Educating the public about the need to end domestic violence
The DVC was established as a County Commission in 1991 as an advisory body to the Board of Supervisors in matters pertaining to domestic violence. The Council makes recommendations to the Board of Supervisors regarding policies, programs and legislation and promotes effective prevention, intervention and treatment techniques to reduce domestic violence in our community.
