    The Lethality Assessment Program (LAP) was designed by the Maryland Network Against Domestic Violence and based on Dr. Jaquelyn Campbell’s “Danger Assessment.”  The LAP is an 11-question checklist that is read by responding officers to victims of alleged intimate partner violence.  Utilizing a weighted scoring system, officers can determine whether or not victims are at a “high risk” for danger.  If deemed “high risk,” officers will immediately attempt to connect the victim with advocates via telephone.  Studies show that a minimal number of intimate partner homicide victims used advocacy services before their deaths.  This assessment connects victims with valuable resources and information that might ultimately save their lives.   In this webinar, we’ll discuss the ins and outs of the lethality assessment, how to administer it, and the results of agencies currently using it.
