Subject to available funding, the Attorney General, working with the state domestic violence coalition, shall develop a protocol for the development and implementation of interagency domestic violence death review teams for use by counties, which shall include relevant procedures for both urban and rural counties. The protocol shall be designed to facilitate communication among persons who perform autopsies and the various persons and agencies involved in domestic violence cases so that incidents of domestic violence and deaths related to domestic violence are recognized and surviving nonoffending family and household members and domestic partners receive the appropriate services.
(Added by Stats. 1995, Ch. 710, Sec. 2. Effective January 1, 1996.)
