For 30 years the City of Dallas Domestic Violence Task Force has served the community by combatting domestic violence and raising awareness about this public health and safety issue. Comprised of elected officials and representatives of law enforcement, courts, and corrections, as well as members of advocacy, religious, media, and volunteer organizations, the Task Force has established itself as the clear voice of community safety concerns and activism. The Annual Summary Report: 2016–2017 builds on the first two reports by providing updates and trend information on the activities and membership of partners in the Task Force, all in an effort to show Dallas’s systemic response to the threat of domestic violence.
