Community Assessment Tool - UPDATED

This is an assessment tool to evaluate the policy and practice for effective process and enforcement of protective orders in a particular jurisdiction. It is intended to be utilized by Coordinated Community Response Teams (CCRTs) to assess their local community response. Initially developed in 2008, the Tool has been revised to facilitate an assessment of your community’s efforts to improve the cultural responsiveness of services in your community—the ability to adapt services to meet the diverse needs of victims regardless of age, race/ethnicity, or other cultural identity. While the Tool was designed to address services around protective orders, it may also be helpful in fostering discussion in your community around other services for victims of sexual and domestic violence.
