"Public Advocate Betsy Gotbaum released the findings of her two-year examination of domestic violence in the city Friday, along with recommendations for improvement. Gotbaum wants the domestic violence registry to be accessible to the Administration for Children’s Services.

Gotbaum’s report, called “Opening the Door,” is aimed at better protecting victims of domestic violence and their families." By Rebecca spitz, NY1 News Link to Article (last visited 2-5-06)
