Whereas the district attorney’s of five currently deals with family violence from a strictly criminal and prosecutorial basis, the task force would enable the district attorney's office to seek protective orders for abused women, and would take more of a protective and preventive posture in dealing w ith such cases
“The goal of the task force would be to try to prevent violence at the home.’’ said Schroeder, adding that the correctional system was failing in the area of preventing family violence and the problem needed to tx* attack***! at the grass roots level
