The Senate will consider legislation to make big changes to the way the Defense Department and the services handle cases of domestic abuse. One provision of that bill would take decisions away from commanders and give them to prosecutors.

  • Brenda Farrell, Director of Defense Capabilities and Management Issues at the Government Accountability Office, said her team’s report provides a broad look at domestic abuse and violence in the Department of Defense.
  • Farrell said the department has taken some steps but has not met all requirements; for example, it pulled from a subset of data to report on domestic violence instead of a complete set of data.
  • Farrell said the department has struggled to fully develop prevention and response training for over two decades.
