The Blueprint For Safety

The Blueprint for Safety

CADA is a proud partner agency of the Blue Earth County Blueprint for Safety. The Blueprint seeks to create a coordinated response between systems partners to enhance the safety of victims of domestic violence in our community.

The Blueprint is based on the following six principles:

Foundations of Effective Intervention:

  1. Adhere to an interagency approach and collective intervention goals.
  2. Build attention to the context and severity of abuse into each intervention.
  3. Recognize that most domestic violence is a patterned crime requiring continuing engagement with victims and offenders.
  4. Ensure sure and swift consequences for continued abuse.
  5. Use the power of the criminal justice system to send messages of help and accountability.
  6. Act in ways that reduce the unintended consequences and the disparity of impact on victims and offenders.
