Help of Door County initiating Lethality Assessment Program

By Paul Schmitt

 

A domestic violence program that originated in Maryland will be implemented in Door County in the future to take a pro-active approach against abuse.  Help of Door County along with the Sheriff’s Department and Sturgeon Bay Police are partnering to bring the Lethality Assessment Model to the area.  Steve Vickman, executive director of Help of Door County, says the program allows community professionals to identify victims of domestic violence who are at the highest risk of being seriously injured or killed by their partner.  He says the program allows victims to connect more quickly to supporting agencies.

 

 

Vickman says his staff and local law enforcement will go through training provided by End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin.  He believes the lethality program will improve local services and help people feel safer in the community.
