The Brooklyn Domestic Violence Court opened in June 1996 and was the first specialized court in New York State dedicated to handling felony domestic violence crimes. As the first court of its kind, it was charged with creating an effective and coordinated response to domestic violence crime and has served as a model for over 20 domestic violence courts statewide. In response, to the increased number of domestic violence cases in Brooklyn, a second Domestic Violence Court opened in 1998. These courts have received wide national and international recognition and awards for their pioneering work in combating domestic violence.

The court is located at:

2nd Judicial District
Kings County IDV Court
Kings County Supreme Court, Criminal Term
320 Jay Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201
