How Domestic Violence is Defined
This link leads to a report by the Morrison Institute for Public Policy at Arizona State University. The report finds that police in the state believe that domestic violence is a "real crime," but many do not think prosecutors follow up effectively. The Institute surveyed 777 active-duty officers throughout the state, and found that 80 percent consider domestic violence a serious problem in the community they serve. Many officers said they feel caught between conflicting forces and isolated in their efforts to help victims. Many fear they are not doing all they can to ensure victim safety and hold offenders accountable.
