ABOUT THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY DOMESTIC VIOLENCE COUNCIL

On April 29, 1979 the Board of Supervisors established the Domestic Violence Council. Comprised of members from shelter agencies, community groups, the courts, law enforcement, the District Attorney’s office, L.A. City Attorney’s office, Public Defender, and Health Services, the DVC facilitates interdepartmental coordination of services, reviews legislation, and serves as a forum to raise public awareness of services and develop strategies with the public and private sectors to stem the incidence of domestic violence. The DVC conducts public awareness campaigns and offers domestic violence trainings for professionals in the field. It also provides an opportunity to study the problem of domestic and family violence in Los Angeles County, and makes recommendations regarding public information, training, legislation, education, and subsequent program development in these areas. In addition, the DVC identifies funding to strengthen existing programs and bring services into communities that lack them. Standing committees of the DVC focus on legislation, LGBT, immigration issues, systems improvement, shelter services and religion as each pertain to domestic violence. The DVC welcomes and elects members who demonstrate substantial involvement in domestic violence issues, and each member has the endorsement of an organization devoted to serving people affected by domestic violence in Los Angeles County.
