One out of every three women will be a victim of intimate partner violence. It's important to know that these types of crimes are prosecuted much differently that a battery between strangers. One in eight men will be victims of intimate partner violence. If all men would report this crime, those numbers would be much smaller!
DON'T ENTER INTO A RELATIONSHIP WITH SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN ABUSIVE, PREDATORY OR HARASSIVE IN THEIR PAST RELATIONSHIPS.

NDVR is the first national database model for an online violent offender and domestic violence registry available to the general public.
When a new relationship is formed, most individuals will tell you what they want you to know about them but not necessarily the truth. Most will not be honest about past civil or criminal offenses, however great or small. This is important to understand as approximately 1.3 million women and 835,000 men are physically assaulted by an intimate partner annually in the United States1, with several thousand becoming murdered or going missing. Furthermore, according to the NCADV Violence Policy Center Annual Report, 2004, approximately 61% of female homicides in this Country are caused by husbands or intimate partners.
NDVR provides the conviction records of offenders, both men and women, who have been found guilty of domestic violence and domestic violence related offenses such as physical battering, stalking, criminal confinement, intimidation, and strangulation, etc. Use of this registry is free to the general public, available by internet 24 hours per day and will even be available through mobile device applications.
We believe that prevention is the key. Our goal is to save lives. . .
