Gov. Malloy: Connecticut State Police to Adopt Domestic Violence Assessment Program
Proclaims October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Governor Dannel P. Malloy today announced the Connecticut State
will be adopting a lethality assessment program (LAP) to keep victims of
domestic violence safe by encouraging more victims to use shelters, counseling and advocacy and support services.
"The lethality assessment is an easy and effective method that identifies victims of domestic violence who are at heightened risk of being seriously injured or killed by their intimate partners and immediately connects them
to the domestic violence service provider in their area," said Governor
Malloy. "With practices like this in place, we will undoubtedly save lives. I commend the Connecticut State Police and the many municipal police departments for their adoption of this vital tool."
Governor Malloy has proclaimed October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month in the State of Connecticut.
