Gov. Kathy Hochul speaks at Binghamton University's Health Sciences in Johnson City. Oct. 25, 2021.

New York’s executive branch agencies have been found to be in compliance of an executive order signed this spring by the governor to help identify and support individuals who suffer from domestic violence.

The order will assist more than 100,000 state employees and their families who will be provided with trained domestic violence liaisons, if needed.

The state's inspector general oversees the program. It began after an investigation revealed deficiencies in state policies and practices following a related domestic violence murder involving a state employee in 2019.
