Domestic Violence Section

The Special Victims Unit works many different types of crimes against persons ranging from domestic assault, rape, child abuse, child sexual abuse, child neglect, stalking, child pornography, elder abuse, and referrals from Department of Children Services.

Ending the Cycle of Violence

Following the patrol response to domestic situations, this unit provides victims with resources for ending the cycle of violence. Often times the victim reunites with the offender, making this type of case very difficult to prosecute, however in cases where prosecution occurs, the unit works well with the District Attorney’s Office and has a high rate of success.
