The Domestic Violence Response Team (DVRT) Program
The Domestic Violence Response Team (DVRT) program was state mandated in 2000 with the knowledge that victims of domestic violence are often isolated and trapped in abusive relationships. Studies demonstrate that victims of domestic violence are three times more likely to return to their abusers if they are provided with little or no support. Police officers provide protection to victims of domestic violence by arresting and processing the batterer, while volunteers help the victim to feel less isolated and alone. DVRT volunteers respond to the police department to provide emotional support, information on domestic violence, community resources and a safety plan. If you would like to speak with a DVRT Volunteer, contact your local police department. If you would like to become a DVRT Volunteer, please contact your county DVRT Coordinator.
