Since 1993, BWJP has worked to improve the civil and criminal justice system’s response to intimate partner violence (IPV), as well as addressing the parallel responses of the military services to IPV among their ranks.

Our longstanding partner, the National Clearinghouse for the Defense of Battered Women, focuses on all issues related to the defense of battered women charged with crimes, including homicide. BWJP also manages the National Center on Protection Orders and Full Faith and Credit, which provides technical assistance on issues related to the issuance, service, and enforcement of protection orders.

Our National Domestic Violence and Firearms Resource Center, which recently launched its website, Safer Families, Safer Communities, supports comprehensive implementation and enforcement of domestic violence firearm prohibitions at all levels of government.

BWJP offers training, technical assistance, policy analysis, and consultation on the most promising practices of the criminal and civil justice systems in addressing intimate partner violence. Staff members have particular expertise in assisting jurisdictions around the country to implement coordinated interagency responses to IPV that maximize victim safety and offender accountability.
