Welcome to our web site!


The Domestic Violence Coordinating Council was established in 1996 by the Monterey County Board of Supervisors.  The purpose of the Council is as follows:

  • To improve coordination between agencies, departments, and the courts for the benefit of victims of domestic violence and abuse

  • To promote effective prevention, intervention, and treatment techniques which will be developed based upon research and data collection

  • To improve the response to domestic violence and abuse so as to reduce the incidents thereof
    The Council may, if necessary, establish procedures, conduct reviews, develop policies, and take all other actions necessary to further the board objectives of responsiveness to domestic violence and related issues, subject to approval of the Board of Supervisors
