Dr. Stacy Sechrist (NC Network for Safe Communities) received a continuation of funding from the Lexington Police Department for the project “Support of Lexington Police Department’s Offender Focused Domestic Violence Initiative.”
North Carolina Network for Safe Communities (NCNSC) has been the training/technical assistance and evaluation partner for the replication of the Offender Focused Domestic Violence Initiative in Lexington, NC. since the project began in 2014. A portion of Lexington Police Department’s grant with the NC Governor’s Crime Commission (GCC) will be to continue to support NCNSC’s on-the-ground support of the initiative in Lexington, which will include continued data tracking and evaluation, assistance with systems and processes, and documentation of the new addition of a Jessica Gonzales victim assistant within the police department, including outcomes and process changes. The Jessica Gonzales position will be a position funded through the GCC grant to Lexington Police Department.
