Task Force Subcommittees

What are the Suggested Committees that our Task Force Should Have?

In an effort to provide additional assistance to local task forces throughout Georgia, suggested committees have been developed with goals and objectives for each. These recommendations are based on eight years of domestic violence fatality reviews conducted in Georgia. Annually, over 100 Georgia citizens lose their lives to domestic violence each year according to GCADV’s media clipping service. Domestic violence continues to be the leading cause of injuries for girls and women between the ages of 15 and 44 in the state of Georgia. The Georgia Fatality Review project has reviewed 86 cases over the last 8 years. During the last 5 years, interviews were also conducted with 5 victims of near fatalities.


The recommended committees are a result of the diligent work conducted by the fatality review teams throughout Georgia. Many of these individuals are also part their local task force. The fatality reviews help to identify gaps in services for providing victim safety and batterer accountability. Based on the recommendations from the 2011 Fatality Review findings the following committees are recommended to local task forces. To honor the work of the fatality review teams, domestic violence victims and survivors, local task forces are encouraged to identify a committee or multiple committees to adopt. As a way for the Commission to stay informed about the work being conducted throughout Georgia, each local task force is encouraged to inform This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

As task forces throughout the state select committees that fit them best, task forces will be able to network with one another to discover best practices for working on each of these suggested committees.
