Law enforcement officers were the first group that implemented the LAP, in partnership with domestic violence service programs. In one study, 44% of perpetrators of intimate partner homicide had been arrested in the year prior to committing the homicide. Additionally, almost one-third of victims of intimate partner homicide had contacted the police in the year prior to being killed.
The LAP seeks to be a bridge between victims who officers encounter in the field and services that are life-saving, and that victims may not have otherwise reached out for on their own.
See Implementers by State for a current list of law enforcement agencies conducting the LAP.
