At a time when the problems of the world seem insurmountable and the future of funding for organizations like Center for Domestic Peace (C4DP) remains uncertain, it is important to share some good news.
Domestic violence crime rates in Marin are going down.
There have been decreases in both the number of individuals calling law enforcement for help with domestic violence, as well as the number of domestic violence referrals from law enforcement to Marin’s District Attorney. We are beginning to see a shift in ending domestic violence, now and forever – a “light at end of the tunnel.” The pattern of decreased rates is not occurring in surrounding Bay Area counties.
While we are unable to point to one specific causal factor, research demonstrates that multiple strategies are needed to impact major social problems. It has been C4DP’s priority to offer our community multiple ways to obtain assistance, and to help prevent domestic violence.
