RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - Fifty programs around the state have been recertified by the N.C. Council for Women for their work serving domestic violence offenders. 

Program participants, who are often mandated by court-order to attend a certified 26-week program, receive information and resources on how to stop abusive behavior. 
“Statewide Batterer Intervention Programs are a crucial component in addressing core issues of domestic violence,” said Michael Silver, member of the Domestic Violence Commission in a statement. “These programs focus on safety of children in the home, address outdated societal gender roles and end cycles of abuse.”
From April 2012 – March 2013, 4,568 offenders were referred to Domestic Violence Batterer Intervention Programs. Of these offenders, 72 percent were enrolled and 57 percent completed the 26-week program. 
The programs provide services in 85 locations across North Carolina and each program is required to renew their service provision contract annually. The North Carolina Court system can only refer domestic violence offenders to a certified Batterer Intervention Program, according to the Department of Administration statement.
