CHSR releases Research Brief on Police Domestic Violence Home Visiting Program

The Center for Human Services Research has released a research brief on the results of an implementation study done to evaluate the effects of home visitation from police officers in domestic violence cases. Specifically, the program consisted of police officers returning to homes shortly after a domestic incident report to speak with the victim, offer the victim information, assist the victim to connect with domestic violence services, collect additional evidence, and arrest offenders that violated orders-of-protection.
