Enhancing victim safety has always been the highest priority of the Domestic Violence Coordinating Council. With the creation of the DVCC in 1993 came the passage of Delaware’s Protection From Abuse statute and the beginning of a multitude of DVCC initiatives designed to increase the safety of domestic violence victims and their families through increase collaboration and enhanced system response.
The Legislative Committee reviews proposed legislation addressing domestic violence and sexual assault issues and considers legislative initiatives to be sponsored by the DVCC. Participation on the Committee includes representatives from the General Assembly, the Department of Justice, the courts, law enforcement, advocates and community partners.
