Shuswap Interagency Case Assessment Team

The Shuswap Interagency Case Assessment Team (SICAT) works together to identify risks and increase safety. This group responds to referrals of suspected highest risk domestic violent cases with a goal to increase safety by:

  • Identifying risk using the BC Summary of Domestic Violence Risk Factors, an evidence-based risk assessment tool
  • Legally and ethically sharing risk-related information
  • Reaching agreement regarding the risk level
  • Developing a collaborative risk management plan that addresses victim safety and support

SICAT is co-chaired by RCMP-based and SAFE Society programs and is a partnership of local agencies, including:

Referrals can be made to the team by any professional who suspects highest risk domestic violence may be present.
