Domestic Violence Is No Longer a Private Matter, but a Public Problem

Record #:
The police approach to domestic violence has changed. Formerly police saw stopping fights, separating the couple, and calming the situation as their job. The Domestic Violence Task Force in Durham is more pro-active. Procedures include sixteen questions for the investigating officer to ask; issuing warrants for the perpetrators; and follow-up work by the officers, such as keeping a file on further domestic violence and working closely with the district attorney in prosecuting the offenders.
