You are not alone.

The police are often the first responders in criminal domestic violence situations. Police officers are trained to respond quickly to assist victims and deal with perpetrators using approach techniques that ensure the safety of people, defuse a situation or control a dangerous person. Do not hesitate to call 911 if needed.
