This study examines to what extent female intimate partner violence (IPV) victim participation in prosecution is associated with their future safety. The study sought to determine whether victims who participate in prosecution are safer than those who do not. The key finding is that victim participation in prosecution does not increase her seeking help via police calls for service that generate an incident report, nor does it increase the likelihood of future emergency department visits for IPV and injury. Policy recommendations include increasing communication between the prosecutor's office and victims, improving referral to advocacy organizations, and reducing logistical barriers for victims to participate in prosecution.
