Domestic Violence Fatality Review Board
The purpose of the Oklahoma Domestic Violence Fatality Review Board is to prevent future domestic violence deaths by identifying gaps in the domestic violence prevention and protection system and proposing recommendations aimed at improving the coordinated response of the individuals, organizations, and agencies that combine the domestic violence prevention and protection system in Oklahoma.
The Review Board and Program Staff annually identify, review, and report on domestic violence-related fatalities that occurred in Oklahoma during the previous calendar year. A fatality is classified as domestic violence related if it falls into one of the following broad categories:
- Intimate Partner Homicide
- Family Homicide
- Bystander / Good Samartian
Prior to 2010, the Domestic Violence Fatality Review Board was housed at the Criminal Justice Resource Center. Therefore, DVFRB reports from previous years were not produced by the Office of the Attorney General.
