In June 2007, Governor Deval Patrick issued Executive Order 486 to create the Governor's Council to Address Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence. This council replaces a previous commission. Lt. Governor Timothy Murray will chair the council that will consist of up to 30 members appointed by the Governor. The Executive Order tasks the council with specific projects, including creation of a guide for law enforcement agencies regarding adult sexual assault response, revision of the Commonweatlh's law enforcement response guide for domestic violence, and an annual report to the Governor. Ms. Sheridan Haines was selected by Governor Patrick to serve as the executive director of the council. She previously worked as deputy director at Jane Doe, Inc., the statewide sexual and domestic violence coalition. Ms. Haines can be reached at the Executive Office of Public Safety & Security at 617-727-7775.
