The LAP Manager for the Lethality Assessment Program (LAP) will be responsible for managing LAP implementation, training, and technical assistance for designated jurisdictions.
About Our Organization:
Just 12 miles from the heart of Washington, DC and 35 miles from Baltimore, MD, the Maryland Network Against Domestic Violence (MNADV) is the federally-designated statewide domestic violence coalition that brings together victim service providers, allied professionals, and concerned individuals in Maryland for the common purpose of reducing intimate partner and family violence and its harmful effects on our citizens. The Network accomplishes this goal by providing education, training, resources, and advocacy to advance victim safety and abuser accountability.
The MNADV created the nationally recognized, evidence-based Lethality Assessment Program - Maryland Model (LAP) in 2005 to reduce domestic violence fatalities and provide increased safety to victims who are at the greatest risk for lethality or serious injury. With training provided by the MNADV, the LAP is now being implemented in jurisdictions in 37 states across the country, partnering teams of law enforcement agencies and domestic violence programs. The MNADV is a national technical assistance provider and participates in a federally-funded Homicide Prevention Demonstration Initiative (HPDI) with jurisdictions in four states implementing the LAP.
