DVRT - Domestic Violence Response Team


Printer-friendly version

The Domestic Violence Response Team (DVRT) is supervised by Lt. Stephen Levy. In affiliation with 180 Turning Lives Around (180), and with the assistance of the response team volunteers, Marlboro Police Department continues to make this free, 24/7 confidential service available to victims of domestic violence in the aftermath of a highly emotional and traumatic experience. 

180’s volunteer DVRT Advocates are civilian members of the community who work collaboratively with law enforcement to provide support, information, and resources to victims of domestic violence at police headquarters. Advocates also discuss with victims safety planning and their legal rights in regard to obtaining a Temporary Restraining Order. By providing support and crucial perspective of the situation, these specially-trained advocates help to empower victims to make informed decisions for themselves and their families.
