Another tool in the fight against domestic violence was unveiled today in Regina with the first sitting of the Regina Domestic Violence Court.
A therapeutic court emphasizing healing and offender accountability, the new court will work to increase the safety of victims of domestic violence by focusing on creating permanent changes in the behaviour of offenders.
"Violence and abuse in all situations is unacceptable," Justice Minister Don Morgan said. "When it happens in the home, it causes great trauma not only to the victim, but also to our children and it destabilizes families and communities. I am pleased to see that so many partners have come together to address this issue, and I particularly want to thank the Court for its leadership in this area. We've seen the success these type of programs can have in making communities safer and we're proud to see the expansion of this option.
