Two organizations hoping to end domestic violence are teaming up - to find a way to save victims of domestic violence before it's too late.

CMPD and Safe Alliance, a local women and children's shelter, say being able to identify a victim is in a dangerous situation is half the battle. It could prevent women or men who are victims, from being killed.

The system is called Lethality Assessment, and it's a series of questions and answers a police officer will as when called out to a crime of domestic violence.

The officer will then connect the victim with a specialist from the shelter who will offer counseling, or the chance to escape to the shelter and heal. The process is in full effect in Charlotte and seems to be making a difference.
