Are you a victim of Domestic Violence?

Domestic Violence

 

 

Approximately 33 million adult Americans, according to a 2006 Harris Poll, have been the victims of abuse while the CDC has found that 1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men have been the victim of domestic violence at some point in their life.  If you are abused or if you are the abuser and want help here are some resources for you to use.  While I am a mandatory reporter (which means I have to report any cases of  alleged domestic violence, suspected child abuse, potential suicide, potential homicide, and anything else the Command requires to the appropriate authorities and to the Command), confidentiality rules still apply.

 

If you need help please contact either myself or one of the following organizations.  Remember that computers can keep track of where you have been online.  If you are a victim, need help and want to use a computer, public computers are available at many local libraries.

 

For more information on what signs or what you can do please check out the resources below.

 

If you are in immediate danger call 9-1-1!
