Text Analysis as a Tool for a Coordinated Community Response: Keeping Safety for Battered Women and their Children at the Center

This guide for Coordinated Community Response (CCR) and Audit teams will help you identify gaps in safety in your criminal justice system response to battered women and their children. All practitioners charged with intervening in cases of battering—from law enforcement officers to advocates to child protection workers—are organized by guidelines, report-writing formats, intake forms, and policies so that they do their jobs with relative consistency. To enhance safety for battered women and their children, a CCR team can examine the gaps between the safety needs of battered women and how an institution has organized its workers, through “text”, to respond to domestic assaults.
