The Office on Domestic and Sexual Violence is the States Office that works on issues that deal with domestic violence, rape and sexual assault and dating violence. This office works on gaps in the State and Judicial systems addressing problems and recommending solutions. Other responsibilities include encouraging policies that increase a positive response for these issues, strengthening language in law and bills that negatively affect these social ills, and direct and support agencies and organizations that work to end domestic violence and rape and sexual assault in our local communities.
