TOPEKA – (November 22, 2016) – A Liberal batterer intervention program has been certified as fully compliant with state standards, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced today.

City On A Hill, Inc., was certified as having met the core standards described in the Essential Elements and Standards for Batterer Intervention Programs. A Kansas law enacted by the 2012 legislature requires batterer intervention programs to obtain certification from the Attorney General’s Office.

The Batterer Intervention Certification Panel, appointed by the attorney general, completed an in-depth process including a site visit and evaluation to assess program compliance. The certification was awarded for a two-year period, during which the program will be subject to additional monitoring by the Attorney General’s Office.

Batterer Intervention Programs are community-based programs providing intervention services to domestic violence batterers who use dominating, controlling and abusive tactics in relationships. These programs establish accountability for those who batter and prioritize victim safety by assisting participants to choose and sustain non-violence in their lives.
