Intimate Partner Violence Risk Assessment Tool

Intimate Partner Violence includes physical, emotional, sexual, verbal, social and financial abuse between individuals in a former or current legal marriage, who are living together, or in a dating relationship. When responding to domestic violence calls for service, officers of the Prescott Police Department administer a questionnaire (tool) designed to assess the likelihood that an intimate partner relationship could result in a near lethal or lethal outcome by identifying risk markers within the dynamics of the relationship.  Our Victim Advocate utilizes the victim’s responses to work with meeting his/her individual needs in an effort to better address safety concerns and enhance our service to victims of intimate partner violence.
