Domestic Violence   [open pdf - 597KB]

"Domestic disputes are some of the most common calls for police service. Many domestic disputes do not involve violence; this guide discusses those that do, as well as the measures that can be used to reduce them. In the United States, domestic violence accounts for about 20 percent of the nonfatal violent crime women experience and 3 percent of the nonfatal violent crime men experience. This is an essential tool for law enforcement to help analyze and respond to their local problem."
