Our goal is to provide victim's with the resources needed to STOP DOMESTIC VIOLENCE and give Law-Enforcement Officers the tools & options needed, when dealing with a Domestic or Family crisis.
Mission Statement: “The Creek County Coordinated Community Response team is committed to increasing the safety of survivors of domestic and sexual violence and their children by improving and expanding services, and holding offenders accountable by continued advancements in policy and procedure in all aspects of the criminal justice system.”
Comprised of a group of agencies in the county, dedicated to making domestic violence and sexual assault victims safer, and holding their offenders more accountable through the criminal justice system.
Our team came together officially in October 2005. Original team members included: Bristow Police Department, Creek County Sheriff’s Office, Drumright Police Department, Kellyville Police Department, Kiefer Police Department, Mannford Police Department, Mounds Police Department, Oilton Police Department, Sapulpa Police Department, Creek County District Attorney’s Office. Creek County Ambulance, Department of Human Services (DHS), Picket Chapel Church, and Domestic Violence Intervention Services/Call Rape, Inc. (DVIS)
Membership has changed slightly with the times, but the commitment remains the same: improving safety for victims and children, while also holding offenders more accountable for their abuse. The team meets monthly at different locations throughout Creek County.
The team is always setting new goals toward victim safety and offender accountability. Some of the accomplishments of the team include: *Developing a mission statement, *Creating a Victim’s Rights envelope which includes local resources and information on protective orders. This information was translated into Spanish in 2010, *Inviting other teams to attend our meetings, such as Cherokee County CCR Team and Muskogee (Creek) Nation Family Violence Program, *Expanding membership to include first responders, as well as the county’s largest hospital, *Developing and implementing a strangulation form for law enforcement, *New guidelines were developed to require that an ambulance attend all strangulation calls and *Training was provided to the medical community on forensic strangulation assessment training
Traveling to Dallas in 2009 and 2011 to attend the Crimes Against Women Conference, as well as numerous bi-annual CCR trainings in Oklahoma City, sponsored by the District Attorney’s Council.
What is an Emergency Protective Order?
An Emergency Protective Order (EPO) is a civil court order issued by a judge to prevent one person from committing certain acts against another. An EPO is a legal method used to help protect people from any further acts of domestic abuse, such as: physical harm, threats, harassment, and stalking. The person filing for an EPO is considered a PLAINTIFF and the person being filed against is considered a DEFENDANT.
Is an EPO right for you?
If you have been: physically harmed or there has been an attempt to physically harm you, threatened, harassed or stalked
by an intimate partner, former intimate partner, family member, current or former household member, you meet criteria to file for a Protective Order under Oklahoma’s Domestic Abuse Act.
First and foremost, we want you and your family to be safe. Think safety first and know that sometimes a defendant’s behavior can increase once a Protective Order has been filed against them. This information is NOT to deter you from filing, only to empower you with important information and to help keep you safe. If you believe it would not be safe at this time to file an EPO we recommend you follow your instinct and seek help the best way you know how.
If you decide an EPO is right for you, you can file for it either at the Creek County Courthouse, or with DVIS/Call Rape, Inc., located at 121 East Dewey. At DVIS you will be assisted in completing the paperwork, which includes the petition, the court papers, and information on how those papers will be served to the DEFENDANT.
Once you have completed the EPO paperwork, it is then filed at the courthouse, located at 222 East Dewey. A judge will read your request and let you know that same day whether your EPO has been granted.
If your EPO is granted by the judge, the DEFENDANT will be served with the same paperwork. The DEFENDANT must then strictly follow what has been ordered in the EPO. If the DEFENDANT breaks the order in any way, you need to contact your local police department or Sheriff’s Department immediately to report that you have a active EPO and that it has just been violated. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU REPORT ALL EPO VIOLATIONS TO LAW ENFORCEMENT, otherwise the paperwork won’t help protect you.
DVIS would be happy to talk with you in more detail about your troubling situation and help guide you and your family in the safest direction possible.
Please call at 918/224-9290, extension 103 and ask for Patricia Helton. You can also ask anyone at DVIS for additional EPO information or visit the office between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
