Domestic Violence Intervention Program

The Domestic Violence Intervention Program which targets domestic violence, or violence between intimate partners is funded by a grant from the Criminal Justice Division of the Governor's office. Selected defendants charged with Domestic Violence (violence against women) in Tarrant County Criminal Court No. 5 are placed into the Pre-Trial Diversion Court which monitors the defendant's progress in a non-adversarial manner, and is in lieu of traditional case processing. Defendants are selected for program participation after undergoing a comprehensive screening and assessment process and meeting the following eligibility criteria:

  • partner-on-partner violence,
  • no current or prior violations of protective orders,
  • no stalking activity,
  • no open warrants,
  • no other pending charges,
  • no prior history of diversion,
  • commitment to completing a prescribed program, and
  • consent of victim for offender participation.

This court is unique because it combines the judicial function with case management, victim assistance, and an assessment process. The project includes services specifically dedicated to preventing, identifying, and responding to violent crimes against women as they relate to domestic violence.
