Audit work continued, next examining dispatch and law enforcement responses. The audit team analyzed 50 calls to two 911 centers, and a consultant and the audit coordinator analyzed 15-20 police reports of domestic violence from 7 law enforcement agencies (a total of 92 reports) for how victim safety and offender accountability are built into the response of law enforcement officers to dual allegations of violence, sexual assault, stalking, strangulation, child witnesses and individuals from underserved populations; Team members observed and interviewed practitioners, and interviewed battered women; The team and a consultant debriefed all the information, discovering together the themes, conclusions, and recommendations that appear in this report, which truly is a product of group development and writing.
