Applying teams must include each of the following practitioners:
- Community Advocate: Advocate based in a domestic violence services agency*
- Law Enforcement Officer: May be from the Sheriff’s Office or any Police Department within your county
- Prosecutor: Prosecutor from County or District Attorney’s Office
Teams are welcome to include up to two additional criminal justice system stakeholders in their application (ie. Probation, victim advocacy coordinator, dispatcher, judicial representative, etc.). The inclusion of additional team members will not affect the likelihood of your application’s acceptance.
Each team member will submit their own piece of the application, which will then be grouped with the rest of the teams. We encourage teams to apply EARLY! Applications will not be considered complete until all three individuals have completed their portion.
* Many rural counties are served by domestic violence agencies that are not within their own county limits. If you are not sure which domestic violence agency serves your county, click here. Even if your county’s domestic violence agency is not within your county limits, they are still eligible to participate on your team. If you need assistance connecting with an advocate, please reach out to email@example.com.
