Zero Tolerance

“Zero Tolerance for Domestic Violence”, an initiative of the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors, is a public/private partnership designed to reduce domestic violence, family violence, elder abuse and human trafficking in Contra Costa County.  Authorized by the California Legislature as the first Zero Tolerance for Domestic Violence County (SB 968) the initiative is aligning policies, practices and protocols, coordinating services, and creating a climate where violence and abuse are not tolerated.

Zero Tolerance functions on the principle that no one entity can do it alone; placing emphasis on public systems and private providers working, advocating and taking concerted action together.

 October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Conversations about domestic violence recently entered the national stage through the NFL. This story gives us an opportunity to talk about domestic violence with coworkers, friends, and family. Read our October newsletter for some conversation starters.
