The mission of Domestic Violence Crime Watch is to enhance awareness and prevention of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual violence and stalking across the United States.
First, Domestic Violence Crime Watch is a compilation of daily news and articles related to domestic violence homicide across the United States. Countless people have lost their lives to domestic violence crimes in the U.S. - not only intimate partners, but their children, parents, grandparents, grandchildren, siblings, aunts, uncles, friends, new partners, and co-workers. In addition, many bystanders and professionals who work in the field have also fallen victim to these crimes. Countless more have been injured, many critically. Most recover - some from devastating injuries. Some must deal with life-long injuries, such as disfigurement, paralyzation, or brain injuries. Some live, but do not, and will not, recover from their injuries. Many more lives are ravaged by other forms of abuse. Sadly, there are countless more victims to come. Let's make sure they are not forgotten.
It is my vision that Domestic Violence Crime Watch will be a useful resource not only for victims and survivors but for those of us who work with victims and offenders of domestic violence - the many advocates, law enforcement officers, attorneys, prosecutors, judges, clerks, magistrates, corrections personnel, social workers, counselors, clergy, and more - that we may learn from our victories, as well as our failures, and find a way stop this scourge plaguing not only the United States, but the world.
