Duluth Blueprint for Safety
On Thursday, January 29, 2015, the City of Duluth and six criminal justice agencies announced the adoption of a new collective domestic violence policy. The Blueprint for Safety strengthens the city’s Duluth Model coordinated community response to domestic violence cases.
The City of Duluth was selected in 2011 as one of three national sites for the Blueprint for Safety Adaptation Demonstration Initiative, a project of the Office on Violence Against Women, U.S. Department of Justice, in partnership with Praxis International, a national training organization with offices in Duluth and St. Paul. (Other sites are New Orleans, LA, and Shelby County/Memphis, TN). Duluth is the second of the three demonstration sites to adapt the successful St. Paul Blueprint for Safety, developed in Minnesota in 2010.
