 Building and Sustaining an Effective Response to Domestic Violence Crimes: The Blueprint for Safety St. Paul Success 8 Years Later 
Thursday, January 10, 2019

Presenters: Denise Eng and Bree Adams-Bill, Praxis International; Saint Paul & Ramsey County Domestic Abuse Intervention Project; Saint Paul Police Department; Saint Paul City Attorney’s Office

In 2010 the City of Saint Paul, Minnesota, launched an ambitious approach to its response to domestic violence-related crimes. This project, known as the Blueprint for Safety, has transformed the City’s ability to effectively intervene in these cases. Working closely with the local advocacy program, city and county officials have developed new ways of engaging with one another and, more importantly, with victims of violence. The Blueprint has been adapted and implemented in a number of other jurisdictions across the country, but Saint Paul, as the originator and the longest practicing Blueprint community, stands out as a site where the new practices in the Blueprint have become almost second nature and are now part of the landscape of the community response to domestic violence. Learn from local criminal justice practitioners and advocates about how they were able to institutionalize this ground-breaking work and the difference it’s made in their community.
