Commission Releases Local Statistics on Family Violence in Georgia
Atlanta, GA (December 15, 2020) -- Recognizing the need for reliable, timely and targeted data about the problem of family violence, the Georgia Commission on Family Violence (GCFV) is pleased to announce the release of ten localized editions of Family Violence Statistics and Trends in Judicial Districts of Georgia 2013-2017. The ten reports contain data specific to each of Georgia's ten Judicial Districts and build upon a report released by GCFV in June 2020, Family Violence Statistics and Trends in the State of Georgia 2013-2017.
Family Violence is a systemic issue that impacts all of us and requires a coordinated community response to address. The release of these reports makes family violence data accessible to key stakeholders specific to their region of the state. Localized data, particularly when compared to statewide trends included in the earlier released report, create the opportunity for analysis and action reflecting the unique needs of those regions.
The reports available for each of Georgia’s ten Judicial Districts are accessible online for free at gcfv.georgia.gov/resources/annual-report.
