Henderson Coordinated Community Response (HCCR)

The vision of the Henderson Coordinated Community Response is to provide emergency services to victims of Domestic Violence residing in Henderson, Nevada.

 

Mission:
Through a cooperative effort of agencies and individuals, the Henderson Coordinated Community Response works to improve the community response to victims of Domestic Violence, while providing information and resources to those who have been victimized.

Overview:
On May 4, 2006 the State of Nevada Advisory Council for Prosecuting Attorney's adopted the Domestic Violence Prosecution Best Practices Guidelines. Having a coordinated community response is one of the core strategies in effectively stopping the violence and protecting domestic violence victims. Domestic violence is a significant social problem in all communities. The Henderson City Attorney's Office is committed to creating a coordinated community response in order to assist domestic violence victims.
