  • Description

For the past thirty years, activists in the domestic violence movement have pushed the criminal justice system to actively respond to intimate partner violence. This study is an attempt to contribute to the growing body of knowledge about who is at most risk of committing future domestic violence once an incident has been recognized by the police. The work presented here is a result of collaboration among the Berkeley, California, Police Department, the East Bay Public Safety Corridor Partnership, and the National Council on Crime and Delinquency.
