Injury & Violence Prevention Program  (IVPP)

On February 19, 2019 the Board of Supervisors officially established the Los Angeles County Office of Violence Prevention (OVP) within the Department of Public Health. The violence prevention work of the former Injury & Violence Prevention Program (IVPP) is now housed within OVP. OVP collaborates with community and county partners to support the prevention of multiple forms of violence and contributing factors, and ensure that strategies are responsive to community, and trauma informed. OVP monitors the trends and circumstances of violent deaths affecting Los Angeles County to inform decision makers and program planners about ways to prevent and intervene on violence in the community, at home and in the workplace.
