The Lethality Assessment Program (LAP) is a partnership between the Women’s Resource Center and local law enforcement and is aimed at identifying domestic violence victims at high risk of being killed or seriously injured by their partner.
On the scene of a domestic violence situation, officers utilize a screening tool with victims to determine their level of risk and immediately offer to link them to the WRC hotline. The hotline worker provides support, education about domestic violence, and encourage them to access our services. Face- to-face follow up is also available.
The Women’s Resource Center is working hard to expand the LAP services to include all law enforcement agencies in our community.
