Domestic Violence Fatality Review
The Georgia Domestic Violence Fatality Review Project seeks to enhance the safety of victims and accountability for abusers, through the study of fatal and near-fatal incidents of domestic violence. The Project has been in place since 2004. Since that time, we have conducted hundreds of in-depth case reviews, developed recommendations for systemic changes in our community response to family violence, and provided training and technical assistance to stakeholders on the local, state, and national levels.
The Project operates under grants awarded by Georgia's Criminal Justice Coordinating Council with funding from the U.S. Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women.
