The key aims of the DVEM program are to deter repeat domestic violence offenders from reoffending and to keep victim-survivors safe.
The DVEM program is a collaborative initiative involving:
Under the DVEM program, eligible higher risk domestic violence offenders under the supervision of Community Corrections are electronically monitored to ensure compliance with exclusion zones in their Apprehended Domestic Violence Orders (ADVOs). Electronic monitoring is used as a case management tool to assist in managing offender behaviour, in conjunction with other behaviour change interventions and strategies.
When an offender is monitored under the DVEM program, victim-survivors (the primary protected person on the ADVO) are also offered support from specialist domestic violence services.
Where suitable, victim-survivors may also be offered a matched electronic monitoring device.
