The Georgia Coalition Against Domestic Violence

Fatality Review

The Georgia Coalition Against Domestic Violence partners with the Georgia Commission on Family Violence to research and publish the Georgia Domestic Violence Fatality Review Annual Report.  It is an examination of the circumstances and consequences of domestic violence fatalities and near fatalities over the past 6 years, for the purpose of saving lives and holding abusers accountable.

Purpose of Georgia’s Fatality Review

Each Domestic Violence Fatality Review Annual Report serves the following four primary purposes:


Each year, the report presents different themes based on the findings that emerge from cases reviewed.  In 2010, the report addresses a particulary gap in delivery of services to domestic violence victims and survivors.  We need people to know that vital, free services offered by domestic violence programs are available to those who are not staying in shelter or who have not left their relationship.
