 The Community Domestic Violence Program monitors and reports violations of protective orders that have been issued by the courts. When a protective order against a domestic partner is issued by the court, Domestic Violence Program staff monitor these orders and report violations of treatment conditions to the court. They work closely with prosecutors and advocates to ensure that perpetrators of domestic violence are held accountable. Staff members also make certain that victims of alleged abuse receive information about the various resources in the community, and work to help victims and families receive appropriate services. The goal is to provide a consistent, seamless judicial process that is accessible to victims and maintains accountability of offenders.

 

Activities include:

  • Monitoring domestic violence offenders who are subject to protective orders from the court and/or treatment requirements
  • Reporting violations when individuals fail to comply with the terms of a protective order
  • Sending resource packets to alleged victims of domestic violence
  • Promoting community awareness about local domestic violence resources as well as honoring those lost to domestic violence
  • Participating member in the Greater Prince William Sexual and Domestic Violence Prevention Council

    BACKGROUND: In January 1998, the Prince William County Office of Criminal Justice Services received a federal grant for the Community Domestic Violence Program. The Office of Criminal Justice Services Domestic Violence Program is an important component of the Greater Prince William Sexual and Domestic Violence Prevention Council, a joint effort between Prince William County and the Cities of Manassas and Manassas Park. The council focuses on improving the community’s response to domestic violence through collaboration between criminal justice professionals and service providers who have contact with either the victims or perpetrators of domestic violence.
