Member Duties : Members with the AMUS DV project will: share information about rights, options, and the dynamics of domestic violence; develop personalized safety plans; file petitions for PPOs; and increase access to criminal justice and social service resources. Members will connect with survivors of domestic violence by police precinct and community network referrals. Once contact is made, the member will conduct an informal assessment to determine how best to be of service. For those survivors who wish to file for a PPO, members will assist with completing the court petition, gathering necessary documents at the precinct, and submitting petitions to the Wayne County Circuit Court. Members will receive 40 hours of domestic violence training prior to working in the police precincts, and will be versed in filing PPO petitions and show-cause motions to enforce PPOs.
