I hereby grant permission to SARC staff to share information about my case with other members of the Maryland Network Against Domestic Violence Lethality Assessment Project Team. The members of the Project are currently as follows: Aberdeen Police Department, Havre De Grace Police Department, Harford County Sheriff’s Office’s Domestic Violence Unit, SARC’s Program Directors and the Executive Director. The Harford County State’s Attorney’s Office will also participate in case reviews as needed, and will therefore receive case information. It is anticipated that additional law enforcement agencies will join the Lethality Project in the future to provide assistance to victims.
It has been explained, and I fully understand that the case review process is part of the project to test and improve the usability and effectiveness of the Lethality Screen for First Responders and Danger Assessment.
I understand that the case review process is a coordinated effort for the purpose of monitoring my situation and degree of safety. The information shared will be part of the Project’s objective to have a coordinated team approach for victims in potentially lethal situations. Law Enforcement Agencies and the State’s Attorney’s Office are not bound by agreements of Confidentiality and therefore any information disseminated to these agencies cannot be guaranteed to remain restricted.
I understand that I may revoke this release at any time.
