The Lethality Assessment Protocol (LAP) is an evidence-based assessment protocol proven to save lives, improve prosecution rates and decrease domestic violence related homicides in over 30 states. How does this work? The LAP protocol directs members of law enforcement responding to a domestic call to conduct an 11 question lethality screen with the victim. When the screen indicates a high risk of a lethal level of violence, the officer makes immediate contact with Safe Harbor, to connect the survivor to services that could increase safety and save their life.
