Welcome to the State of California 

Domestic Violence Training and Education Program

Mission/Vision

To build capacity among practitioners, organizations and communities to preventing domestic violence and adolescent relationship abuse.

Program Description and Key Functions

The Safe and Active Communities Branch, Violence Prevention Unit, has administered the Domestic Violence Training and Education Program for over 15 years. This statewide program is funded by the Domestic Violence Training and Education Fund (DV Fund 642) which collects fees paid by convicted batterers as a condition of their probation (Penal Code 1203.097). The Domestic Violence Training and Education Program has trained hundreds of probation officers, judges, court personnel, home visitors, faith leaders, disability service providers, and domestic violence practitioners, and youth leaders throughout the state. 

Training for the public on domestic violence is available through local domestic violence organizations. For a listing of these organizations, please go to the Violence Prevention Resource Directory.
