Emerging Models: Domestic Violence High Risk Teams and GPS Monitoring

Thursday, March 8th from 12:00 to 1:30pm ET

Listen to VP Joe Biden speak about the importance of a coordinated response.

This webinar will provide training on the promising practice of deterring domestic violence homicide by combining a high risk team along with GPS offender monitoring. The webinar will focus on the High Risk Team Model (HRTM) developed by the Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center (JGCC) and the work of the Greater Newburyport High Risk Team, initiated by the JGCC, which uses these methods to prevent domestic violence homicide and re-assault in its community. Participants will learn how to initiate this promising practice in their state and best practices for creating a safety net to prevent escalation or re-assault.
