The Lethality Assessment Program (LAP) is an easy and effective way for law enforcement to 1) identify victims of domestic violence who are at risk of being seriously injured or killed by their intimate partners and 2) immediately connect them to the domestic violence service provider in their area. The goal of the LAP is to prevent domestic violence homicides, serious injury, and re-assault by encouraging victims to use the shelter, counseling, advocacy and support services of domestic violence agencies. At this training, participants will learn about the Lethality Assessment Program for First Responders and Domestic Violence Advocates, the domestic violence lethality screening tool, how to conduct a lethality screen for first responders, how to initiate the protocol for high danger screens, and best practices for the lethality assessment program. Those completing this training will be certified as Lethality Assessment Program trainers and can provide training to first responders at their respective law enforcement agencies and domestic violence organizations.
