  • The company holds that its advanced domestic violence monitoring solution could play a vital role for enhancing public safety measures, particularly in light of a recent cases emphasizing the critical need for effective response in domestic violence situations
  • An Illinois appellate court recently upheld a $3 million jury award to the estate of the late Vanessa Taylor, who was allegedly killed by her boyfriend, after finding sufficient evidence that two officers “cared more about going home” than protecting Taylor

On June 30, 2015, about 25 hours after the Chicago Police Department (“CPD”) had responded to a domestic violence call at a West Side, Chicago, apartment, Vanessa Taylor was allegedly killed by her boyfriend, James Thomas. The death led to a wrongful death and survival action lawsuit against the City of Chicago, following which a Cook County jury found the city liable for Taylor’s death and awarded her estate $3 million, “which is believed to be a record civil judgment under the Illinois Domestic Violence Act,” according to an article in the Chicago Tribune (https://nnw.fm/S1MTR). 

The jury found that Taylor’s death was caused by CPD’s breach of its duty to protect her under the Domestic Violence Act. When officers responded to the initial call, placed on June 28, they found Taylor’s boyfriend, James Thomas, in a mental health crisis that prompted them to transport him to the hospital. Once at the hospital, Thomas was given an antipsychotic sedative, administered a mental health examination by a physician, and discharged several hours later, court documents show (https://nnw.fm/mbRD3). 

By the time he was discharged, however, the police officers had already left the hospital and had gone home despite the fact that, when they responded to the call earlier, Taylor had a black eye, according to court records. Furthermore, Thomas had allegedly cut the gas line in Taylor’s building and tussled with the officers, actions the court listed as charges Thomas could have faced in connection with the incident. After being discharged, Thomas returned to the West Side apartment where he committed the alleged crime.

Justices of the Illinois First District Appellate Court recently released a strongly worded opinion upholding the $3 million jury award to the estate of the victim after finding sufficient evidence that two CPD officers “cared more about going home for the day than protecting a domestic violence victim who was killed by her alleged abuser a short time later,” the article reads.

“In light of the recent appellate court decision emphasizing the critical need for effective response in domestic violence situations, SuperCom’s advanced technology solution could play a vital role in enhancing public safety measures,” wrote SuperCom (NASDAQ: SPCB) on its LinkedIn page (https://nnw.fm/jMMM3). SuperCom is a global leader in the field of electronics monitoring (“EM”). The company offers the PureSecurity(TM) Suite, a comprehensive range of products that include a domestic violence monitoring solution, a GPS tracking platform called PureTrack(TM), a house arrest enforcement solution, and an inmate monitoring solution.

“These innovative tools are designed to provide law enforcement and criminal justice agencies with real-time data and analytics, helping prevent tragic outcomes by ensuring constant monitoring and swift response in critical situations. SuperCom’s technology demonstrates a commitment to public safety and the protection of vulnerable individuals, aligning closely with the heightened need for effective and proactive measures in domestic violence cases,” SuperCom explained in the post.

SuperCom’s life-saving domestic monitoring solution is designed to monitor the movement of domestic violence aggressors, acting as a protective front line for victims. It combines several SuperCom technologies, including the PureProtect(TM) smartphone app, the PureTag ankle bracelet, and the PureMonitor software (https://nnw.fm/ae3Vl).

The PureProtect app is designed for victims. It detects proximity violations and alerts the victims whenever the domestic violence perpetrators near their location. The app uses advanced zoning, proximity, alerting, and management capabilities to both enforce a safe distance between the victims and perpetrators and update the former of the latter’s whereabouts. It achieves this without violating the victims’ privacy. The app also supports the latest GPS, cellular, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth technologies, enabling it to communicate with the aggressor-worn PureTag ankle bracelet, which beams signals that report the wearer’s exact location.

Completing the list of technologies that make up SuperCom’s domestic monitoring solution is the PureMonitor software meant for law enforcement officers. The software tracks the location of the aggressors and victims, logging all real-time and historical instances when proximity breaches occur. It also alerts law enforcement officers of breaches and has reporting and analytics capabilities.

The PureProtect electronic domestic violence monitoring solution provides all the information needed to protect victims and enforce court restrictions. Its advanced zoning and alerting capabilities make it a vital tool in helping enforce safety measures and preventing avoidable tragic outcomes like domestic violence-related deaths.
