<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Annie Fukushima

In 2017, the Utah legislature passed HB17, which modified the crime of aggravated assault to include strangulation. Following the passing of HB17, Salt Lake County has implemented an NFS protocol for first responders in June 2019 in order to improve their responses to NFS. This research study contributes to a larger effort to evaluate the efficacy of HB17 and the corresponding protocol by examining protective orders and identifying any barriers.
