WCADV’s Homicide Response Plan was developed by a workgroup comprised of Executive Directors from
domestic violence and dual programs who came together as a result of experiencing and
responding to domestic violence homicides in their own communities. Our objective with this
document is to provide a framework for programs and their communities to develop a plan that
will provide guidance in responding to a domestic violence homicide, whether the victim had
been a client or not. We hope to assist communities in responding in a supportive and
collaborative manner that encourages the further growth of their commitment to working together to end violence.
