DUFFERIN \ CALEDON Domestic Assault Review Team


The Dufferin/Caledon Domestic Assault Review Team (DART) was established in 1994. The Committee is made up of a group of representatives from the County of Dufferin and Town of Caledon (Region of Peel) criminal justice, medical, child protection, and community service agencies. Each agency deals with domestic abuse: victims, children who have been exposed, or perpetrators. The work of the Committee focuses on woman abuse. It is acknowledged that abusive behaviour may be caused by either gender, at almost every age, and in heterosexual or same-sex relationships. However, the area of woman abuse continues to receive special scrutiny as most reports to Canadian Police (85%) involve women as victims and research confirms that male to female violence is more physically damaging.
