This book assists in demystifying the process of establishing such teams with an eight-step model - the `Protocol Development Cycle'. Through extensive contact with a wide variety of professionals and communities, the authors provide accessible and well-organized guidelines for those who want to start and maintain an interagency team to respond to almost any type of interpersonal crime. In a practical and hands-on style, they include exercises and training materials, along with sample letters, forms, press releases and other documents designed to aid community teams assess the response to crime and identify gaps in services.
