Practical Implications of Current Domestic Violence Research: For Law Enforcement, Prosecutors and Judges

Published June 2009

By Andrew R. Klein

The purpose of this work is to describe to practitioners what the research tells us about domestic violence, including its perpetrators and victims, the impact of current responses to it and, more particularly, the implications of that research for day-to-day, real-world responses to domestic violence by law enforcement officers, prosecutors and judges.

This NIJ online publication is based on three final reports submitted to the National Institute of Justice under contract number 2007M-07032, which was awarded to Advocates for Human Potential.
