Domestic Violence Death Review Team

The Sacramento County Domestic Violence Death Review Team is a sub-unit of the Sacramento County Domestic Violence Coordinating Council. Formed in the spring of 1998, the team meets on a monthly basis.

The purpose of the Domestic Violence Death Review Team (DVDRT) is to bring together a multi-disciplinary team to review domestic violence related homicide and homicide/suicide cases in Sacramento County; to develop strategies, policies and procedures to improve the system’s response to domestic violence; and to reduce and prevent future incidents of domestic violence related homicides, homicide/suicides, and injuries. Domestic Violence continues to be a widespread problem in our county.

The DVDRT is a multi-disciplinary, broad based organization which reviews information provided by law enforcement, public health, social services, coroner, child welfare, public and private medical organizations and domestic violence advocacy organizations. The current participating organizations are:
