Body: "Victims of domestic violence have grave concerns about their personal safety immediately following service of an Order of Protection. New York’s Family Court Order of Protection Notification System serves as a model for other states to provide victims with more timely and accurate information when Orders of Protection are served so they, and the victim advocacy community, can plan for the safety needs of victims and families. The program will undoubtedly save lives and lead to safer communities."
