Preventing Homicide Recording

Milwaukee County has embarked on an exciting initiative to implement the Maryland Lethality Assessment Program (LAP) county-wide.  The LAP is considered an emerging best practice that involves training law enforcement officers on indicators of potentially lethal domestic violence and victim risk assessment techniques, and then establishing and implementing a follow up protocol where victims who are identified as high lethality risk are connected with an advocate via a hotline call while officers are still on the scene.   Dr. Jackie Campbell of Johns Hopkins University conducted an extensive study involving women who were victims of DV homicide or attempted homicide and found that only 4% had ever sought shelter at a domestic violence program, despite the fact that receiving domestic violence advocacy services is a protective factor against domestic violence homicide.  The LAP, developed by the Maryland Network Against Domestic Violence, will work to close that gap and connect high-risk victims to life-saving advocacy services from the moment they choose to reach out to law enforcement for help.  The protocol is also adaptable for use with other professionals who may be “first responders” to domestic violence victims, such as emergency room physicians.  This webinar will offer participants an opportunity to learn about the LAP, and hear how Milwaukee got started with this process.
