Cochise County DV-ACT (Domestic Violence Awareness and Collaboration Team)


Cochise County's Domestic Violence Awareness and Collaboration Team (DV-ACT) has worked to build and maintain coordinated community response to victims of violence since 2002.  Since 2013 the project has worked to address services and training of service providers to respond to victims of sexual violence and establish a county-wide protocol.  DV-ACT meets monthly, on the last Thursday of every month *(Unless otherwise noted). See below for the next meeting date! For agendas and other task force meetings in the Rural PATHS project, see the calendar in the right hand column of this page.  Co Chair: Chris Hiser of the Sierra Vista PD.
