After three years of planning, Shelby County officially launched its Blueprint for Safety, a multi-layered collaborative response to domestic violence. Shelby County is one of three communities to take part in the U.S. Justice Department initiative with a plan for handling domestic violence beginning with the 911 call, following through the police investigation and prosecution, protecting the victim and rehabilitating the offender. The collaboration includes city and county governments, the district attorney general’s office and law enforcement, all of whom signed the finalized Blueprint, the Commercial Appeal reports.
