Stearns County’s Domestic Violence Partnership project received the County Achievement Award from the Association of Minnesota Counties. Stearns County received the award for the innovations and improved quality of life that the project offers for domestic assault cases.
The project started in 2008 as a result of the last seven homicides in Stearns County involved domestic violence. Stearns County reports that 85 percent of repeat violence victims also had children.
The Domestic Violence Partnership uses intensive supervision, accountability and support programs. The program also includes drug and alcohol testing, access to treatment and strict no contact and behavior conditions for offenders.
