Domestic Violence Intervention Project

Mission
The Domestic Violence Intervention Project (DVIP) is dedicated to promoting safe and healthy relationships through community coordination.

Purpose
All residents of Alexandria are affected by domestic violence. Because domestic violence occurs in all areas of our community, there is a need for a coordinated community response. DVIP addresses arrest, prosecution, victim advocacy, treatment, education, and training.

Goals
The goals of DVIP are to coordinate and monitor the response of the legal system and the community to family violence incidents in Alexandria, Virginia. Specifically, our goals are:

  • to ensure that victims are provided with effective protection and services
  • to see that assailants are held accountable for illegal behavior; and
  • to increase community awareness of family violence

Participating Agencies (not inclusive)

  • Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS)
  • Alexandria INOVA Hospital
  • Court Services Unit
  • Department of Community & Human Services
  • Fire Department
  • Health Department
