Brooklyn receives grant for national domestic violence initiative

Brooklyn is one of four cities nationwide selected to continue into Phase 2 of the Domestic Violence Homicide Prevention Initiative, which aims to help state and local jurisdictions identify potential victims and monitor high-risk offenders of fatally abusive relationships.

The Brooklyn DA’s office, NYPD, city Department of Probation, city Criminal Justice Agency, Safe Horizon and the borough president’s office will work together on the project.

“This grant is a testament to our deep commitment to protect women in Brooklyn from domestic violence, especially women in high-risk relationships,” said Brooklyn District Attorney Kenneth Thompson.
