Annotation: This is a case study of how the U.S. Justice Department’s Office of Justice Programs’ (OJP‘s) Diagnostic Center worked with the Evidence-Based Decision Making (EBDM) Policy Team composed of 16 criminal justice agencies from the City of Charlottesville, VA and Albermarle County, VA, in developing a system-wide response to domestic and intimate partner violence (DV/IPV), with a focus on improving offender accountability and victim outcomes.
Abstract: The Diagnostic Center’s data analysis identified a need to develop and implement a comprehensive and coordinated approach to DV/IPV. Diagnostic Center specialists conducted just over 40 interviews with local criminal justice officials, social service stakeholders, and crime victims. The analysis focused on victim access to services at multiple points in case processing, how offenders were processed through the justice system, where gaps or overlaps in services existed, and how the system’s effectiveness could be improved. The Diagnostic Center determined that Blueprint for Safety, a system-wide response framework, would be the best strategy for the communities to use in addressing DV/IPV. Blueprint is a set of coordinated protocols based on knowledge gained from 30 years of research, demonstration projects, and practice. This report describes the technical assistance and training provided by the OJP Diagnostic Center in preparation for the implementation of Blueprint for Safety.
