City police begin policy on domestic violence
Sgt. Eric Kroll talks Friday about the roll-out of the Maryland Lethality Assessment Program by the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police.
Pittsburgh police brass are confident a new domestic violence protocol going into effect Monday will save lives and not unduly slow down response times to other calls.
Through the new technique — which comes nearly a year after a Larimer woman was killed after a disconnected 911 call — officers responding to domestic violence calls will offer suspected victims an 11-question survey designed to determine how likely it is their partners will kill them.
