    The
    signs and symptoms of domestic violence for people with disabilities
    are similar to those of other forms of domestic violence. They may
    include physical violence, sexual assault, and emotional and/or
    psychological abuse.


    Victims with disabilities face unique barriers:


    * The abuser may be the victim's intimate partner, parent, or child as well as the primary caregiver.
    * The abuser may be the sole sign language interpreter.
    * Service availability and accessibility may be limited.
    * Providers and others may not understand the victim or the victim may not have language skills to describe the abuse.



    To exert power and control, the abuser may:


    * Isolate the victim from family, friends, and other community members.
    * Refuse or fail to provide basic life necessities such as food and
    water, medication, personal hygiene care, shelter, and comfort.
    * Threaten the victim with total abandonment.
    * Refuse to transport the victim to essential medical appointments.
    * Withhold financial support or deposit the victim's funds into their own personal account.
    * Withhold the use of their TTY device.

LADA Victim Impact Program - 0 views

  •  
    VIP
    We in law enforcement have a special
    obligation to the most vulnerable of
    crime victims. Those who have suffered
    life-devastating crimes - elder abuse, sexual
    assault, stalking, family violence and hate
    crime - should be treated with dignity and
    supported. They deserve all the compassion
    and protection that we in the criminal justice
    system can provide.
    To ensure that the victims of these highly
    traumatic crimes are given the best possible
    treatment, the District Attorney's Office has
    established the Victim Impact Program
    (VIP). This program places specially trained
    prosecutors in Branch and Area offices
    throughout the county to specifically deal
    with these types of cases. This bolsters the
    offices vertical prosecution efforts, ensuring
    that one prosecutor handles these cases from
    start to finish.
    Under VIP, law enforcement also benefits.
    Investigators present their cases directly to
    a VIP coordinator, who assigns each to a
    specially trained prosecutor and oversees
    their handling. This assures expert treatment
    from beginning to end.
