According to Amy Stockwell, UCFJC project coordinator, officers will be trained in the Maryland Model Lethality Assessment Program (LAP), which consists of 11 questions a police officer will ask a victim when responding to domestic violence calls in order to assess the danger the individual is in.

Another Voice: Help Is Available for Victims of Abusive Relationships
Jessica M. Fitzpatrick - Buffalo News

Stories about domestic violence permeated the news during October, Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Two of these news stories dealt with horrific tragedies ending in death. Buffalo witnessed a murder-suicide when a perpetrator of domestic violence shot and killed his wife and then himself. Days later, a high school student in Washington shot several people, killing three, and then killed himself. Before the shooting, he used social media to express his despair and rage regarding a failed romantic relationship.

These stories should draw our attention to the severity of dating and domestic violence.
