On November 14, 2017, the DVCC contracted the services of the Center for Court Innovation to facilitate a strategic planning day with the Council and key community partners. Participants in this event articulated a broad vision for enhanced statewide coordination on domestic violence cases in order to better promote victim safety and offender accountability. Participants reviewed previously identified goals and generated new ideas for fulfilling the broader vision. The Council then prioritized new areas of focus and developed several achievable initiatives that would further enhance cross-court communication, coordinate and address high risk domestic violence cases, promote resources for offenders and develop strategies for education, prevention and awareness.
Members voted on a name for the new strategic plan. Aptly named “P.E.A.C.E (Prevention * Education* Collaboration* Engagement),” this strategic plan emphasizes the Council’s commitment to the mission. The goals and objectives lay out a plan for the next few years that will focus on the safety and needs of victims; offender accountability; and supportive efforts towards a collaborative community response to violence in families and the community.
