This webinar presented two new tools for communities to use in assessing their responses to domestic violence. The Accounting for Risk and Danger Guides provide a systematic way to examine how well justice system practices incorporate risk and lethality assessment strategies, and avoid increasing risk to victims. The Civil Protection Order Guides can be used to assess how well community practices related to the application, service and enforcement of civil protection orders reflect the principles outlined in the manual: Civil Protection Orders: A Guide for Improving Practice. The presenters described the technical assistance available to communities interested in conducting either of these assessments.
