Police Advocacy

Police Advocacy

This program provides advocacy services for victims of domestic violence seen by the Domestic Violence Section of the Kansas City Missouri Police Department. This position is co-located within the Kansas City Missouri Police Department Domestic Violence Section.

Additionally, this program includes our Lethality Assessment Program initiative with the KCPD. LAP helps us provide a crucial point of access for domestic violence victims who need help the most—those with a high risk of being murdered by their abusers. If an officer determines a victim is at a high risk, he or she calls Rose Brooks Center’s 24-hour hotline for support and follow-up.
