In 1870, the United States Government constituted the creation of the United States Department of Justice, which is also known as DOJ.

The DOJ was initially established to ensure the enforcement of the law and administration of justice, which is equivalent to the justice or interior ministries of other countries all over the world.

2) Office on Violence Against Women - The agency operating within the DOJ that is geared towards the administration of 19 grant programs in an effort to provide protection and services to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking. The primary goal of the agency is to enable these victims to pursue a safe and healthy live and hold the offenders accountable for their acts of violence.   (continued...)
