Domestic violence reporting
The Mississippi Attorney General's Office has launched a new tool for law enforcement and courts statewide to use in reporting and updating incidents of domestic violence. MSDVR (Mississippi Domestic Violence Reporting) is a single statewide repository for domestic violence reports, utilizing existing report platforms to make integration for law enforcement as seamless as possible.
The system utilizes the same platform as the Department of Public Safety’s eCrash system and was created by the same developers, the University of Alabama Center for Advanced Public Safety (AL CAPS).
It also includes geolocating to easily save accurate location information; injury diagrams to mark size, type, and location of injuries, as well as a function for uploading photographs; fields for utilizing the Lethality Assessment Protocol to ensure the safety of victims.
