With the main goals of supervision being Offender Accountability and Victim Safety, someone who presents as a seemingly “easy” case may be the most lethal.
This webinar will discuss some of the tactics/characteristics of a DV Offender and a victim and how this impacts the ongoing supervision of the offender, the advantage of having a specialized caseload, circumstances/factors in determining supervision level and frequency of reporting, and recommendations regarding sanctions.
