Adult Domestic Violence Program
The Domestic Violence (DV) Unit works in collaboration with local victim advocacy agencies, Batterer Intervention Programs and the Josephine County Domestic and Sexual Violence Council (JCDSVC). The DV Unit is tasked with enforcing each offender’s supervision conditions as identified by the Courts, Local Supervisory Authority, and the Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision.
The Unit vigorously enforces court ordered no-contact, anti-stalking and restraining orders and works with victims to encourage safety planning through referrals to community resources. The primary emphasis of the Domestic Violence Unit is prevention and intervention in an attempt to achieve and maintain the overall Unit goal of increased victim protection, offender accountability, and probation visibility.
The Parole/Probation Officer is specially trained in the behaviors and beliefs of domestic violence offenders and utilizes a variety of tools to assist in the enforcement of the offender’s supervision conditions. The Parole/Probation Officer works in collaboration with Batterer Intervention Programs and Polygraph Examiners to provide a framework of offender accountability and rehabilitation, while maintaining victim safety.
Offenders convicted of a domestic violence crime are required by court order to attend and complete a Batterer Intervention Program. Community Corrections utilizes treatment providers approved by the Josephine County Domestic and Sexual Violence Council and by the department Director.
