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.” Dr. John Weil is principal co-investigator on the project.

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, North Carolina, 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.
