Monticello Area Domestic Violence Fatality Review Team

Mission Statement




The mission of the Monticello Area Domestic Violence Fatality Review Team is to prevent the incidence of family and intimate partner violence* fatalities.

Representatives from the criminal justice system, the advocacy community, the academic and public policy field, the health care community, the mental health and social services community, and other interested individuals and agencies will work to identify the circumstances that lead to family and intimate partner related deaths.  This effort will help determine what practices and procedures may be implemented or improved to enhance early identification, intervention and prevention efforts in similar cases.  All individuals and agencies involved hope to highlight successful practices and procedures and to strengthen or improve those that are identified as less effective.






*As defined in Virginia Statute relating to family violence fatality review teams 32.1-283.3
