Governor Dunleavy has issued an Alaska Proclamation declaring October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month in Alaska.  Click here to read the proclamation.  

 

On October 6, CDVSA and the UAA Justice Center released the results of the 2020 Alaska Victimization Survey (link to media release attached).  The AVS is a quinquennial survey   conducted three times in, 2010, 2015 and 2020.  To review the results of the 2020 Survey, as well as previous surveys go to  Alaska Victimization Survey (AVS) | Justice Center | University of Alaska Anchorage.  A copy of the AVS 2020  final report is available at 2020 Statewide Alaska Victimization Survey Final Report.



CONGRATULATIONS to Brenda Stanfill, the new Executive Director for the Alaska Network on Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault.




The VOCA Fix to Sustain the Crime Victims Fund Act (VOCA Fix Act), legislation to strengthen the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA), passed the Senate on July 20 in a 100-0 vote. The bill  was signed into law by President Biden.  Thank you to Senator Lisa Murkowski for her passionate support for victims of crime in Alaska and across the country.


The new IPV-IDD is now live!

The Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (CDVSA) is excited to announce, during Domestic Violence Awareness Month, a new interactive tool providing easier access to data related to intimate partner and domestic violence—the Intimate Partner Violence-Interactive Data Dashboard (IPV-IDD). See the press release HERE.

Sexual Assault Kit Initiative
The Department of Public Safety has published a SAKI Interim Report;  it is now available online for the public. The Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (SAKI)  project, funded through a federal grant, launched in January of 2017. As a result of this initiative, DPS is moving forward with the  working group recommendations and is applying for federal grant funds in an effort to implement SAKI tracking software and a program that will track the outcome of CODIS hits.
