In addition to hosting a statewide conference to introduce BPI, Delaware added a mandatory reporting field on its crime report form, thereby reminding officials to identify and record incidents of crimes committed against persons with disabilities. Delaware also produced and published a report on crimes committed against persons with disabilities. The BPI Delaware multidisciplinary team grew to 31 members, including persons with disabilities. BPI Delaware also created a formal memorandum of understanding (MOU) for cases involving victims with disabilities, and it created a toll free number for reporting allegations of abuse committed against persons with disabilities.
