All UUPS police and dispatchers should be trained on the full array of domestic violence indicators to help officers respond appropriately. The university should adopt and train UUPS officers and others in the “Lethality Assessment” recommended by the Utah Domestic Violence Coalition, which focuses on the actions of the perpetrator and not on what the victim believes or perceives. Leadership of UUPS should review current anti-domestic violence efforts. Several universities have a wide range of programs and approaches to address the issues of sexual and interpersonal violence in their many manifestations.
Review current domestic violence prevention efforts to ensure protocols and responses reflect best practices.
Have officers and other appropriate staff complete Lethality Assessment Protocol.
