Tucson City Court Domestic Violence Court to Share Expertise

Tucson City Court’s Domestic Violence Court has been chosen by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Violence Against Women (OVW) to be a Domestic Violence Mentor Court. Mentor courts are selected to serve as national models and share their expertise by hosting site visits, linking courts with peers facing similar challenges, and assisting other domestic violence courts to implement best practices to respond effectively to these difficult cases.

With funding from a two-year grant, Judge Wendy Million and the Domestic Violence Court team will host site visits from jurisdictions planning domestic violence courts, travel to other jurisdictions to provide on-site technical assistance on developing domestic violence courts, and share forms, procedures, and protocols.
