Stay Safe Contra Costa
Are you worried someone close to you might hurt you, hurt someone else, or hurt themselves? Does this person have access to a gun?
In partnership with Bay Area Legal Aid and Contra Costa Family Justice Centers, STAND! offers free, confidential, in-person support to plan and apply for a Domestic Violence Restraining Order. While a restraining order is active, the restrained person must relinquish or sell any guns, gun parts, and ammunition within 24 hours, and must file proof with the court within 48 hours.
LAP Follow Up
Developed by the Maryland Network Against Domestic Violence (2005) the LAP program is a coordinated effort between law enforcement and community-based domestic violence advocacy programs to use a validated, field-based screening tool to identify and respond to those cases at highest risk for homicide. After screening, law enforcement connects the individual to the crisis line while still on-scene, where an Advocate will offer safety strategies and immediately connect them to help up to and including emergency lodging.
STAND! is proud to partner with the Alliance to End Abuse, the Brentwood Police Department, Concord Police Department, Richmond Police Department, San Ramon Police Department, and Walnut Creek Police Department to offer this coordinated and differentiated response to Contra Costa residents at highest risk for homicide during a domestic violence incident.
