Domestic Violence

The Domestic Violence unit (Branch IV) provides supervision and treatment services related to domestic violence convictions, as well as electronic monitoring of Court-imposed curfews and "stay-away" orders.

Four dedicated domestic violence supervision teams provide case management services for batterers referred by the Court in criminal, deferred sentencing and civil protection order matters.

An additional domestic violence treatment team provides psycho-educational and direct treatment services for batterers referred with special Court-ordered conditions. This team also monitors the treatment services provided to offenders by private sector organizations. These services are provided on a sliding fee scale to batterers mandated into treatment by Court order.

Branch IV also includes a Traffic Alcohol Program (TAP) Team that provides supervision services and treatment referrals to individuals convicted of certain traffic and/or alcohol related offenses.
