Domestic and family violence framework

The department is committed to reduction of harm within our community as a result of Domestic and Family Violence (DFV) and has endorsed the DCS Domestic and Family Violence Framework 2016-19.

In line with the department’s commitment to community safety and in support of the DCS Domestic and Family Violence Framework key focus areas of Prevention; Collaboration and Information Sharing; and Control and Monitoring, the Department implemented an Intervention Orders notification system so that all staff have access to critical information when managing prisoners and offenders.

This information may also, under strict adherence to Information Sharing Guidelines, be shared with funded service providers to support victim safety.
