Office for the Prevention of Domestic Violence


Domestic Violence Advisory Council Transition Report



Such a complex issue that cuts across multiple criminal justice and human services systems cannot be effectively addressed by one agency alone. The Council is committed to continuing to pool the best knowledge of each member to devise collaborative solutions that change the way New York addresses domestic violence. We look forward next year on working towards the implementation of a joint reporting system that reduces reporting burdens and improves data collection; continuing to enhance the Dashboard with new data, as well as creating county-level dashboards as a tool for communities to discuss their own strengths and challenges; and to continue to use the invaluable network represented by the Council to identify opportunities that strengthen our response to and prevention of domestic violence.
