Lethality Assessment Program (LAP)

The Virginia Lethality Assessment Program (LAP) is a collaborative effort between the Office of the Attorney General (OAG), the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance, and the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS).   It is based on the Maryland model and Dr. Jacquelyn Campbell’s research.  Please see the list below of participating programs in Virginia. The statewide team is grateful for their efforts in implementing LAP and submitting the necessary data to track the success of LAP in Virginia.

Lethality Assessment Program - Statistics

To best describe and assess Virginia’s lethality assessment programs, we are collecting monthly data based on LAP activities. This worksheet should help you organize and collect the data that we are requesting. Our request for data will occur on a biannual (twice a year) schedule. Typically, January-June will be collected in July; July-December will be collected in January.
