A key component of the Special Assault Unit is the Intimate Violence Enhanced Services Team, also known as InVEST. The team is comprised of one detective from the Special Assault Unit, one advocate from Hubbard House
and a planning technician from the City of Jacksonville Victim Services.
InVEST members assist victims in obtaining court orders and work closely with the State Attorney's Office to build stronger cases against batterers. They also ensure batterers know the law as it pertains to domestic violence and that they comply with existing court orders.
The office staff from InVEST works closely with a variety of other organizations throughout the community to provide services to families affected by domestic violence, including the Center for the Prevention of Domestic Violence (CPDV). CPDV is a "one stop shop" located on the 2nd floor of the Courthouse in room 2409 where victims can receive assistance obtaining an injunction for protection and finding a safe place to relocate.
