Can You Predict Lethal Intimate Partner Violence?

Event Dates
Event Duration

Of all women murdered in the United States, 40-50 percent are murdered by their intimate partners and 45 percent occur when the woman is trying to leave her abusive partner.

Women threatened with a gun are 20 times more likely to be murdered.

Approximately 1.3 million women are physically assaulted by an intimate partner per year in the United States.

Practitioners and researchers have built strong partnerships to understand and prevent intimate partner violence. In this webinar, co-sponsored with the National Institute of Justice, the audience learned about the Danger Assessment (DA) and how this tool is changing the way police in Baltimore, Maryland are addressing domestic violence. What Baltimore is doing may help your jurisdiction.
