Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is unfortunately very prevalent in nearly every U.S. community. Domestic violence can encompass a large number of criminal acts including battery, assault, criminal threats, rape, sexual battery, etc.

Domestic violence is a crime that occurs in every community in the world. Men, women, children, and animals have all become victims of this offense and many have not made it out of their households in time. It is not discriminatory- victims come from all racial/ethnic backgrounds, socioeconomic backgrounds, all career fields and from both homosexual and heterosexual backgrounds. While the term “domestic violence” is commonly used to describe the physical aspect of an abusive relationship, the term can also incorporate other occurrences such as emotional abuse, psychological abuse, sexual abuse, etc.

Living in fear is something that no one should ever have to live through. There are a number of resources available both locally and statewide that can assist victims and their families. All citizens should be aware of the prevalence of domestic violence in their neighborhoods and communities and be willing to contact law enforcement if they believe that someone needs assistance.
