CCADV Issues Latest Homicide Report Marking 20 Years of Strengthening Connecticut’s Systemic Response to Intimate Partner Violence

Connecticut saw a notable increase in intimate partner homicides in 2018 when compared to the previous three years (18 in 2018 vs. 10 in 2017, 12 in 2016 and 9 in 2015).

New Family Violence Arrest Law Shows Positive Impact on Victim Safety

Citing a drop in family violence dual arrest rates of between 7-11%, Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence (CCADV) today released its latest report highlighting the positive impact of Connecticut’s new dominant aggressor family violence arrest law.
