DOMESTIC BATTERY

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE RELATED CALLS ARE ONE OF THE MOST FREQUENT AND RE-OCCURING CRIMES THAT LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS COME IN CONTACT WITH.  THESE CALLS ARE EXTREMELY DANGEROUS CALLS BECAUSE MOST OFFENDERS/SUSPECTS FUNDAMENTALLY BELIEVE THAT THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO PUNISH/DISCIPLINE THEIR FAMILY IN WHATEVER WAY THEY DEEM NECESSARY. PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING LINKS ON DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ABUSE STATISTICS/ PREVENTION TECHNIQUES, AND OTHER HELPFUL INFORMATION.  REMEMBER: NEVER ATTEMPT TO STOP A CRIME IN THE PROGRESS OF BEING COMMITTED BY YOURSELF. ALWAYS CALL 911.

COMMUNITY/NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH PROGRAMS

A COMMUNITY/NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH PROGRAM IS A VERY HELPFUL TOOL IN EVERY AREA.  UNFORTUNATLEY, YOUR LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT CAN NOT BE IN EVERY AREA AT ONCE.  IF YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD SETS UP A WATCH PROGRAM AND TELLS ITS MEMBERS WHAT TO BE LOOKING FOR, AS WELL AS THE PERTINENT INFORMATION TO GET, YOU CAN ADVISE YOUR NEIGHBORS THAT YOU WILL BE OUT OF TOWN AND ASK THEM TO KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR PROPERTY. IT CAN BE A WONDERFUL ASSET. IF YOU ARE SEEING A SUSPICIOUS VEHICLE, TRY TO MAKE OUT A COLOR, MAKE, AND MODEL OF VEHICLE. ANY DISTINGUISHING MARKS ON THE VEHICLE ARE HELPFUL AS WELL.  IF YOU ARE ABLE TO GET A LICENSE PLATE THAT IS GREAT AS WELL.  A DIRECTION OF TRAVEL OF THE VEHICLE AS WELL AS AN APPROXIMATE TIME AND PLACE THAT YOU SAW IT AT.  THE SAME IS TRUE OF TRUE OF SUSPICIOUS PEOPLE. WHAT WERE THESE PEOPLE WEARING, THEIR RACE, PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION AND DIRECTION OF TRAVEL.
