State Departments

Conducting the LAP in Maryland State Departments

In the three participating Maryland State Departments–Department of Human Resources (DHR), Department of Public Safety and Community Supervision (DPSCS), and the Department of Juvenile Services (DJS) — the LAP is administered by staff within the departments. Departments partner with their local domestic violence program to conduct the LAP.

Why Conduct the LAP in Maryland State Departments

State Departments present another avenue by which domestic violence victims may have contact with the system. Victims may be working with the Department of Social Services, under DHR, or the abuser may be supervised by DPSCS. These systems present a unique opportunity to identify domestic violence victims and connect them with life-saving domestic violence services.
