No one has answered this question because it is confined to Danbury, CT, and evidently, none of the people who answer questions is from that locale. I can give you ideas about how to find out the answers to your questions, and give you ideas about what is happening elsewhere. In parts of Minnesota, domestic abuse calls are given high priority with officers using a questionnaire to assess the danger of death once the current situation is under control. The police work closely with the court system, faxing the assessment to domestic abuse workers who then contact judges to expedite orders of protection and removal of the abused to a shelter. If you want to find out what is in CT, contact your local shelter and ask to speak to the director. Ask her about what is done locally and who else you should speak to. Get the names of attorneys or social workers who work in the domestic abuse field. Try to talk to a police officer who works with the crisis team.
