Implementing a Firearm Surrender Protocol
Published by: Jennifer Waindle and Jenni Stolarski
Research and experience confirm that access to a firearm dramatically increases the risk of lethality in domestic violence cases. This webinar will address applicable federal law, including recent U.S. Supreme Court cases and their application to domestic violence cases handled on a state level. Additionally, this webinar will include lessons learned from launching DV firearm reduction initiatives in DeKalb County, GA and an exchange of ideas from a multi-agency perspective on how to address the surrender of firearms in both the criminal and civil justice systems. The intended audience is anyone who is part of a fatality review team, family violence task force, domestic violence intervention program providers, and the civil and criminal justice system partners.
