What Is A Domestic Violence Officer?

Because domestic violence calls and arrests are so common in New York, police precincts have specially trained Domestic Violence Officers who are responsible for investigating domestic violence cases and acting as a liason between the police and the complaining witness.

Domestic Violence Officers may visit the home and make referrals to various services for victims of domestic violence, including shelters and counseling.

They can also help a victim develop a safety plan.

When the Domestic Violence Office is involved in your case, you should be prepared for a difficult future.

You’ll be facing criminal charges, orders of protection, and a total disruption of your life and routine.

The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help minimize your trouble and push back against domestic violence charges in New York.
