Law enforcement has a unique perspective on domestic violence, an all too common social problem.  Officers are often asked to intervene in this life-long problem of citizens in a few minutes — and domestic disturbance is the second most dangerous call for police first responders.  This training takes into consideration the frustration of multiple calls to one address, the disenchantment of not understanding the dynamics of the repeat victim, and efforts put into place to hold all parties accountable.
