About

AmeriCorps Urban Safety Domestic Violence Advocate Program (AMUS DV) The AmeriCorps Urban Safety Domestic Violence Advocate program embeds advocates in DPD Precinct offices to support DIPV survivors and increase DIPV awareness of law enforcement and community groups. Our advocate members are often the first people to reach out to survivors after a police report, which enables us to provide quick direction on the complex navigation of the criminal justice system. Regardless of survivors’ decisions to pursue criminal prosecution, advocate members offer assistance with developing personalized safety plans, petitions for personal protection orders (PPOs), and connection to other supportive services, such as counseling and shelter.
