About Domestic Violence Prevention
Domestic Violence Prevention Projects
Domestic violence and indigenous family violence are significant issues of justice and safety for the South Australian community. They have a profound impact on the health and wellbeing of communities, families and individuals, and have significant economic impact. Prevention of domestic violence and indigenous family violence is a key objective of the South Australian Government . Government has key leadership roles and responsibilities in the prevention of domestic and indigenous family violence. The State Government is committed to developing ways to assist and work with South Australian communities for the prevention of domestic violence and indigenous family violence. It is recognised that a whole-of-community approach, which reaches across governments and communities, is required to achieve this vision. The impact of domestic violence and indigenous family violence, and the range of sustained initiatives required to minimise their harmful effects and to work to prevent them, cut across the three tiers of government, and across the core business of a number of government and non-government portfolios, departments and agencies.

Mission Statement and Purpose The Mission of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence is to organize for collective power by advancing transformative work, thinking and leadership of communities and individuals working to end the violence in our lives. NCADV believes violence against women and children results from the use of force or threat to achieve and maintain control over others in intimate relationships, and from societal abuse of power and domination in the forms of sexism, racism, homophobia, classism, anti-Semitism, able-bodyism, ageism and other oppressions. NCADV recognizes that the abuses of power in society foster battering by perpetuating conditions which condone violence against women and children. Therefore, it is the mission of NCADV to work for major societal changes necessary to eliminate both personal and societal violence against all women and children. NCADV’s work includes coalition building at the local, state, regional and national levels; support for the provision of community-based, non-violent alternatives - such as safe home and shelter programs - for battered women and their children; public education and technical assistance; policy development and innovative legislation; focus on the leadership of NCADV’s caucuses and task forces developed to represent the concerns of organizationally under represented groups; and efforts to eradicate social conditions which contribute to violence against women and children.

84. Davis - Domestic Violence And Police Officers As Abuser Or Victim
and empathy towards the plight of police families in particular, officers in turn would become more understanding of domestic violence victims in general.
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND POLICE OFFICERS AS ABUSER OR VICTIM Domestic violence is a multifaceted complex phenomenon. It includes abusive acts towards children, intimate partners regardless of gender, and the elderly. For police departments, acknowledging that police officers can be abusers or can be abused by another family member, regardless of age or gender, may be the first positive step in resolving this problematic issue. Domestic violence inflicts suffering and deaths in too many family's police officers visit and officers know only too well that they don't have to leave home to encounter it. To get respect you must give respect, not demand it. Perhaps to receive empathy it might be wise to offer some empathy towards the officers. There are few agencies in this country that have made more progress placing domestic violence programs, policies, and procedures in place than police departments. There are three prominent contemporary theories that attempt to explain the cause of domestic violence. Central to the FEMINIST or COGNITIVE-BEHAVIORAL model is that domestic violence mirrors the patriarchal organization of society and it is men alone who use violence to maintain their dominate role in the family. Norms and mores in society allow this form of abuse to continue. The behavior of abusers is a result of these learned mores and norms.

WASHINGTON, D.C. Attorney General John Ashcroft today announced the release of a Justice Department-sponsored public service announcement (PSA) challenging men from all walks of life to help join the fight in eliminating domestic violence. The 30 second and 15 second PSAs are designed to air during the month of October commemorating "Domestic Violence Awareness Month," although additional versions of the PSA without the tagline noting October’s designation are also being made available to run past this month. "Domestic violence is wrong and destroys the lives of far too many women and children. I’m challenging men across America to take the pledge against domestic violence. We must work together to eliminate the horrific cycle of violence," said Attorney General John Ashcroft. "This public service announcement demonstrates the Bush Administration’s unceasing commitment to keep families safe, hold offenders accountable, and bring communities together in our ongoing efforts to end domestic violence." The PSA, which features Attorney General John Ashcroft, John Lynch of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, U.S. Air Force Colonel Will Gunn, and others to encourages men to pledge to never commit, condone or remain silent about domestic violence. Information about the pledge, as well as a digital version of the PSA, is available at

    Domestic Violence
    The purpose of this section is to provide police with information and advice that can be offered to community members about domestic violence. This section does not attempt to train police in their legislative requirements, or the investigative process, but rather provide a general overview of domestic violence and the options available to those involved in domestic violence situations.
    What is Domestic Violence?
    Many people have different ideas about what does and does not constitute domestic violence. As police, we must work within the legislative definition. It is therefore important to inform members of the community of this definition, so that they are aware of the boundaries within which police must operate. Section 11(1) of the Domestic Violence (Family Protection) Act 1989 states that domestic violence (a) wilful injury;

RICHMOND The legislation, HB1234 and SB237, was sponsored by Del. Morgan Griffith (Salem) and Sen. Tommy Norment (Williamsburg). It takes effect on July 1, 2004. The money will be available each year by applying to the Department of Criminal Justice Services for annual grants to fund additional prosecutors, or to extend legal assistance, shelter or other services to victims. In addition, the legislation earmarks half of the current $20 marriage license fee for the Department of Social Services each year, which generates an additional $500,000 for domestic violence services and programs. Previously that funding stream had been language in the budget, but this change puts it into the Code of Virginia. Another piece of domestic violence legislation approved by the General Assembly and signed by the governor allows judges to award temporary child support to victims of domestic violence at the same time they seek a protective order.

By Katya Adler
BBC Spain correspondent
There is growing awareness of domestic violence in Spain Spanish men, portrayed as insensitive, insufferable and even aggressive towards women, have traditionally been the butt of macho male jokes.
But the new Spanish Prime Minister, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, does not find the situation very funny. He recently described Spain's domestic violence record as the country's "worst shame" and an "unacceptable evil". On Friday his government made a draft "gender violence" law the very first of the not even week-old administration. It aims to bring new domestic violence legislation before parliament by the summer. At least one woman dies every week in Spain at the hands of her partner. Thousands stay in abusive relationships because, they say, there is nowhere else to go. Sadly, these figures are not uncommon in Europe. But there is a growing awareness here of the problem.

How Domestic Violence is Commonly Defined
Domestic violence, or battering, is the establishment of control and fear in a relationship through violence and other forms of abuse. The batterer uses acts of violence and a series of behaviors, including intimidation, threats, psychological abuse, and isolation, to coerce and control the other person. (Uniform Crime Reports, Federal Bureau of Investigation, 1990) Most research on domestic violence has primarily focused on women and their children. Women of all cultures, races, occupations, income levels, and ages experience domestic violence from husbands, boyfriends, lovers, or partners.
Prevalence Among Homeless Women
Approximately half of all homeless women are believed to be domestic violence victims, based on self-reporting and observations of program staffs. With an estimated 500 adult single homeless women and at least 450 to 500 homeless mothers with children, there are about 500 homeless women in the county each day who are domestic violence victims. There is no countywide estimate of homeless children who are domestic violence victims.

The Hidden Victims of Domestic Violence by Nancy Wolf
What is the face of domestic violence? In the past, my answer would have fallen within a range that I suspect most of us see - a range that includes women's faces, battered and bloodied; women's bodies, bruised and battle-scarred; women's psyches, shattered and broken; women's souls, lost and without hope. This is indeed a face of domestic violence - an awful fact of life for many thousands of women, a shameful act by many thousands of men. Everywhere in the popular press and media we are repeatedly told - with no reference to the original sources - the appalling statistics: domestic violence occurring every 14 seconds (Murphy-Milano, 1996), six million women victimized by their male partners each year (Berry, 2000), women are 95% of all domestic violence victims ("Rogue of the Week," 2001), one out of two wives abused (Marecek, 1999). But are these statistics accurate? Do they tell the whole story? Is woman-as-victim the

Check here for updates , or contact CGRS BACKGROUND Rodi Alvarado Peña is a Guatemalan woman who suffered ten years of brutal violence at the hands of her husband, a former soldier. Despite her repeated attempts to obtain government protection, the police and the courts refused to intervene. When she ran away, her husband found her and beat her unconscious. Desperate to save her life, Ms. Alvarado finally fled to the United States, leaving her two children with relatives. She was fortunate to obtain the help of the San Francisco Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights, which arranged for representation by a volunteer attorney. In 1996, a San Francisco immigration judge granted asylum to Rodi Alvarado ( read the decision ). But the immigration service chose to appeal.
