SEEKHAVEN'S NEWEST LAP PARTNERS:
MOAB POLICE DEPARTMENT
In collaboration with Seekhaven and Utah Domestic Violence Coalition, Moab Police Department received training this June and will now implement Lethality Assessment Program to high-risk victims of inter-partner violence. Moab PD will encourage these individuals to access services immediately.
Research shows that, in the year prior to the homicide, more than 44% of abusers were arrested, and almost one-third of victims contacted the police. These contacts demonstrate missed opportunities to identify victims in danger of being killed by their intimate partners.
Alternatively, only 4% of abused victims had used a domestic violence hotline or shelter within the year prior to being killed by an intimate partner. This statistic shows that victims who need the most help aren’t self-initiating contact with domestic violence-specific resources. They do, however, come in contact much more often with law enforcement. The LAP capitalizes on the contact that law enforcement has with victims in danger of intimate partner homicide, and connects them to local resources.
Once victims in danger of being killed by an intimate partner engage with domestic violence services, their risk of re-assault diminishes greatly.
Seekhaven is now LAP partners with the following agencies: Moab City Police Department, City of Blanding Police, San Juan County Sheriffs Office, Monticello Police Department and Moab Valley Multicultural Center/Centro Multicultural.
