Formed in 2017, APA’s Domestic Violence (DV) Prosecution Committee brings the nation’s leading working DV prosecutors and victim advocates together to advance the field of domestic violence prosecution and address the needs of DV prosecutors, managers, and victim advocates. The Committee is comprised of 25 to 30 prosecutors and victim advocates from major jurisdictions experienced in DV prosecution and management. Committee members represent over 30 million community members and are responsible for tens of thousands of felony and misdemeanor cases every year. The work of these practitioners focuses on intimate partner violence (IPV). The Committee’s work is informed by the experiences of current working DV prosecutors, national experts and allied DV partners.
