For 30 years the City of Dallas Domestic Violence Taskforce has served the community by combatting domestic violence and raising awareness about this public health and safety issue. Composed of elected officials and representatives of law enforcement, courts, and corrections, as well as members of advocacy, religious, media, and volunteer organizations, the Taskforce has established itself as the clear voice of community safety concerns and activism. This Annual Summary Report builds on the first by providing updates and trend information on the activities and membership of partners in the Taskforce, all in an effort to show Dallas’s systemic response to the threat of domestic violence.
