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, you 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
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. Law enforcement officers successfully completing the training will receive Review Training Credit as follows: Curriculum Area VI: Domestic Violence, 5 hours.
