Goals and Objectives:
The Douglas County Attorney recognizes the importance of communicating and cooperating with law enforcement and other public and private community agencies that provide services to families, victims, and perpetrators of domestic violence. A specialized Domestic Violence Prosecution Unit in coordination with other community agencies provides the best opportunity to achieve the following goals:
- To stop the violence
- To protect the victim from additional acts if violence committed by the Defendant
- To protect the children or other family members from exposure to, or possible injury from domestic violence
- To provide restitution to the victims
- To hold the batterer accountable for their violent conduct
Nebraska has a critical interest in reducing the number of incidents of domestic violence and increasing the number of positive dispositions in domestic violence prosecutions.
It is the position, in Douglas County, that the aggressive prosecution of domestic violence is a necessity in order to protect victims and future victims of domestic violence.
