State Summary

Alaska does have domestic violence legislation that includes same-sex relationships. The state does not currently collect incident-based data and plans to continue to collect only summary data. There is no state domestic violence or sexual assault law enforcement data collection. A database of protection orders is maintained by the Department of Public Safety in its Central Registry of Protective Orders. All law enforcement agencies with access to the state system have access to the Registry.

The Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault collects incident-based information from all 24 shelters in the state using a standard data collection form coupled with direct entry into an automated database. The database, designed by the University of Alaska Anchorage Justice Center, collects victim, incident, offender, and medical information. The Council also collects information on the services offered to clients in the state shelters.

The Forensic Nurses Association of Alaska has just begun collecting data from the 11 Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner and Sexual Assault Response Teams in the state. The forms, also designed by the Alaska Justice Statistical Analysis Center, collect information about each incident in instances where victims seek or are referred for medical treatment. These forms are then sent to the Forensic Nurses Association and entered into a database. Funded by the National Institutes of Justice, the Association plans to share the database with each team for direct data entry. It also plans to produce reports and conduct research with the information collected.

The Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault will share data in aggregate form upon request, as will the Forensic Nurses Association of Alaska. The Alaska State Troopers (see below) will accept requests, which will be evaluated by staff.
