WHAT IS DOMESTIC VIOLENCE?

There's an intimate partner homicide prevention study in Missouri and 5 other states (Arizona, Maryland, New Jersey, Oregon, and Texas) led by Dr. Jackie Campbell from Johns Hopkins University and Dr. Jill Messing from Arizona State University. The study is called PAIR – Preventing and Assessing Intimate Partner Homicide Risk. Its goal is to update currently used risk assessment tools used by law enforcement (e.g., the Danger Assessment and Lethality Assessment Program), and to develop a Missouri specific tool that can help identify situations with high risk of escalating into lethal violence.
