The Domestic Violence Prevention Program was established in 1995. The program consists of five, 1.5-hour sessions taught by a counselor. Its purpose is to teach offenders alternative methods of dealing with disputes rather that resorting to violence. The class also provides education on the effects and impact of assaultive behavior.
The Domestic Violence Prevention Program is held in a private conference room at the Court (27701 Jefferson Avenue, St. Clair Shores, MI 48081). The program takes place on Wednesday nights, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The fee for the program is $150 and you may register/enroll by doing the following:
