The Domestic Violence Unit prosecutes felony and misdemeanor crimes committed within families, households and dating relationships. Offenses include assaults, harassment, property damage and violations of protection orders. The DV Unit prosecutors and victim advocates are housed at the Crystal Judson Family Justice Center along with other professionals, including community advocates and law enforcement. Together, we provide the resources and services that help protect victims of domestic violence. An early intervention strategy coupled with a coordinated community response is designed to prevent domestic violence from escalating and perpetuating itself.
