Coordinated Community Response (CCR)Team development is an intervention effort to address domestic violence and sexual assault. Teams bring together professionals that respond to domestic violence and sexual assault in an effort to develop a climate within the community where victims are safe and batterers are held accountable. Generally, a CCR Team is comprised of an assistant district attorney, law enforcement representatives, court personnel, probation and parole personnel, victim service providers, first responders, medical personnel, and batterers intervention program providers.
The function of the CCR Team is to address changes within the criminal justice system in the community that they serve. The team develops protocols and procedures that enable agencies to work together, and provides an opportunity for professionals from different disciplines to strategize, resolve problems, and make changes within the system to improve the community's response to domestic violence and sexual assault.
The DAC CCR Specialist is funded through the Improving the Criminal Justice Reponses Program (ICJR) grant from the United States Department of Justice (DOJ), Office on Violence Against Women (OVW). The CCR Specialist provides ongoing training and technical assistance to the CCR teams throughout the State of Oklahoma.
