Abstract:

For almost 30 years the City of Dallas Domestic Violence Taskforce has served the community to combat domestic violence and raise awareness about this important public health and safety issue. Comprised of elected officials and representatives from law enforcement, courts, and corrections, as well as members from advocacy, religious, media, and volunteer organizations, the Taskforce has established itself as the clear voice for community concerns and activism on this critical issue. This Annual Summary Report will be the first official synthesis of the activities and membership of partners in the Taskforce, all in an effort to show Dallas’ systemic response to the threat of domestic violence.
