Abstract

Professor Balos and Judge Gomez combine to produce this model policy dealing with domestic assault cases. The foundation of this policy is the result of research comparing jurisdictions requiring varying degrees of police intervention and court involvement in such cases. The authors conclude that a policy, such as the one proposed here, which mandates arrest of the perpetrator in addition to requiring various police and court procedures is most effective in protecting the rights of the victim as well as the defendant.
