What Are Domestic Violence Interagency Case Assessment Teams and What Do They Do?

ICATs are partnership groups which include criminal justice, child welfare, health and antiviolence workers with a goal of keeping domestic violence victims and their children safer. This goal is achieved by legally and ethically sharing risk related information and building a safety net for victims, their children and the community and initiating interventions and monitoring of suspects. Agencies in the community who are not ICAT members can still refer cases into the ICAT.
