The Utah Office on Domestic and Sexual Violence is the States Office that works on issues that deal with domestic violence, rape and sexual assault and dating violence. This office works on gaps in the State and Judicial systems addressing problems and recommending solutions.
"Utah women have more to fear from the men they know than from any stranger. Young people in particular, who are dating, have now ended up on both sides of the weapon in Utah. It is important for us to consider their developmental process, their life experiences, and begin to establish a premise that can lead us to an understanding of what can channel such a young person to this horrible event." Ned Searle, Office on Domestic and Sexual Violence
