CITY OF MANSFIELD,
Domestic Violence Tracking System
In April, 1997, the City of Mansfield received a U.S. Department of Justice Violence Against Women grant in the amount of $30,000 to track and analyze the city's efforts to prevent domestic violence. The grant is a partnership among the Mansfield Police Department, the Richland County Domestic Violence Task Force, the Domestic Violence Shelter and Ashland University. Under the grant, data will be collected on every domestic violence police call. These calls will be tracked through arrest versus non-arrest, successful prosecution versus unsuccessful prosecution, offender treatment and repeat calls. The system will pinpoint weaknesses and strengths within the domestic violence prevention system and offer evidence for corrections.
The $30,000 grant helps to fund the work of two police personnel, four to six civilian employees and two volunteers and targets domestic violence victims, offenders and their families.
