DVPP pairs a Victim Services counselor with an officer of the NYPD or the Housing Police. The team attempts to prevent family violence before it erupts by reaching out to all families reporting domestic disturbances to the police, reinforcing the message that domestic violence is against the law and that help is available to victims and batterers. Any person abused by a family member, who has filed a complaint with a police precinct, will be contacted by the counselor or officer in the community policing unit. The complainant will receive references for getting an order of protection (the borough court), counseling and other services. The counselor and the community policing unit officer will, when appropriate, do home visits as well. Counselors conduct roll call training 2-3 times a month.

Payments accepted: FREE. Languages (other than English): Spanish (others may also be available).
