Your story could help other survivors of domestic violence

Douglas County assessing needs and resources. Online survey open until Feb. 5

Posted on January 19, 2024 2024Public Health


Did you know that about 1 in 3 women report domestic violence in their lifetime – and 1 in 4 men? As law enforcement works to eradicate this crime in Douglas County, we have other experts working to support survivors.

Douglas County is assessing the needs and service gaps to better serve survivors of domestic violence and their families. We know that it takes courage to share your experience, but if you’re willing to share your story, others will benefit. Please consider taking the anonymous online survey, available now through Feb. 5. The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete.

The survey focuses on four main topics: service offerings and accessibility, training or technical assistance needs, Douglas County partnerships and collaboration, and community priorities and investments.

Whether you’ve experienced domestic violence or are otherwise connected to the issue through a friend, family member or your work, we invite you to take the survey. Survey responses will be combined with other research – such as focus groups with survivors; interviews with law enforcement, schools, or other experts; and data analysis – for a final report with recommended next steps.

If you are currently experiencing domestic violence, we encourage you to report to law enforcement. You can do so by dialing 9-1-1 or texting 9-1-1. If it is not an emergency, you can call the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Dispatch non-emergency number at 303-660-7500, or the non-emergency line for your local police jurisdiction in Lone Tree, Parker or Castle Rock.

You can contact a DCSO Victim Assistance Advocate for more information and resources at 303-660-7535. If you need assistance but are not ready to report to law enforcement, you can still get help by contacting The Crisis Center 24/7 line at 303-688-8484.
