The NJ Domestic Violence Fatality and Near Fatality Review Board (DVFNFRB) allows the community to honor victims of domestic violence-related fatalities and learn from their deaths in an effort to improve systemic and community responses to domestic violence.

The NJ Domestic Violence Fatality and Near Fatality Review Board is authorized under New Jersey statute N.J.S.A. 52-27D-43.17 and is housed in the NJ Department of Community Affairs' Division On Women.

The primary objectives of the DVFNFRB are to:

  • Identify domestic violence related fatalities and near fatalities.
  • Engage in quantitative and qualitative reviews of statewide fatalities.
  • Recommend system changes in order to promote victim safety, offender accountability, and work toward prevention of domestic violence fatalities.
