The Domestic Violence Task Force is made up of 40 plus members of various Dallas area agencies whose primary focus is the prevention and eradication of domestic violence and the support of victims. The Task Force’s current focus is on identifying potential lethality in domestic violence situations and ways to prevent lethality from occurring. The Task Force is also working to improve communication between the various departments on the taskforce.
