Case review

June-November: Conduct system-wide case review of community’s current domestic violence response

During the first six months of ICCR, teams work closely with consultants from Praxis International to conduct the Best Practice Assessment, a system-wide case review of their community’s current domestic violence response.

The Best Practice Assessment (BPA) is a structured review of several real domestic violence cases in your community that examines the impact of current policies and procedures on victims of domestic violence. It serves as the backbone of the ICCR curriculum and sets this program apart from other, less extensive training programs. The BPA encourages each team to build on your county’s own unique strengths, rather than employing a “one size fits all” approach, to ensure that the resulting CCR is the best approach for each individual community.

BPA Steps:
- Assign a coordinator and select additional BPA members. Praxis will assist teams in determining which fellow is the best fit for coordinator and which additional community members could be invited to join the process.
- Decide focus of your team’s BPA. You may choose one or several of the following: emergency communications; patrol response; investigations; prosecution charging decisions; victim-witness services; bail evaluation and conditions of release; and/or pre-trial release supervision and enforcement.
- Map current systemic response to domestic violence with the help of Praxis consultants.
- Review case records and policies. The number and type of case records each team reviews will vary based on focus and size of the county.
- Conduct survivor focus groups. Advocates will work with Praxis to identify focus group members and will have the opportunity to lead their county’s focus group, if desired. 
- Develop findings and recommend changes. Your team will write a brief report and recommend systemic changes based on the findings of your BPA.


Praxis

December-May: Create and/or improve upon your community’s Coordinated Community Response

Once your BPA is complete, your team will work with ICCR and Praxis to develop a Collaborative Action Plan, which includes actionable “next steps” based on your BPA findings and recommendations. The Action Plan is the jumping off point for your team to begin creating or improving upon your community’s CCR. 

As you move through your last six months in the ICCR training year, webinars and in-person trainings will be focused on specific CCR models and skills, and we will work closely with you to address any/as many of the Action Plan steps as your team chooses.
