New initiative to fight domestic violence in Bryan/College Station

BRYAN, TEXAS - More than 15-hundred domestic violence calls were made to 911 in the Brazos County this year.

Now, law enforcement in the Brazos Valley announce a new initiative to fight domestic violence.

The Maryland network against domestic violence is training law enforcement officers and advocates on their groundbreaking "Lethality Assessment Program."

The Lethality Assessment Program is a new strategy to prevent domestic violence homicides and serious injuries.

With questions like, “has he or she threatened to kill you or your children” to questions such as “has he or she ever tried to choke you.”

This new screening process will determine the level of risk a person is facing based on the situation.

If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence please call Phoebe’s Home at 979- 822-7511.
