Background

Blueprint for Safety is a comprehensive, coordinated criminal justice system response to domestic abuse crimes, which was developed in Minnesota by the City of Saint Paul, St. Paul Police, Praxis International, Saint Paul Domestic Abuse Intervention Project and other agencies in the City.

The Blueprint for safety is a framework which:

  • Improves how agencies share information, from 999 operators to police, prosecution to courts and probation
  • Ensures risk is properly assessed and responded to at every step
  • Encourages new victim engagement strategies
  • Pays attention to reducing unintended negative impacts on survivors and their communities
  • Creates a new way for agencies to work together to identify problems and find solutions that increase protections for victims
  • Develops strong partnerships, which facilitate agencies to communicate risk and safety effectively, connecting the dots, closing gaps and preventing tragedies.

Blueprint Launch

“Across the country, we have learned the hard way that great harm and tragedy can occur when criminal justice agencies do not coordinate their interventions on multiple levels of information gathering and sharing or do not use sound intervention approaches. The criminal justice system has the ultimate obligation to keep communities safe, yet its sheer size and complicated structure can prevent domestic violence cases from being handled as effectively as they could be. The Blueprint changes this.” Bea Hanson, Principal Deputy Director, Office on Violence Against Women – Remarks delivered at launch of New Orleans Blueprint for Safety, October 21, 2014
