Case Study: Prepared Increases Law Enforcement and Victim Safety During Domestic Incidents
Domestic incidents occur often and are incredibly dangerous for law enforcement officers. According to the National Domestic Violence Hotline, more than 12 million people are affected by intimate partner violence every year. Additionally, almost half of all women and men experience psychological aggression from an intimate partner in their lifetime. Between 2011 and 2020, 43 officers were killed while responding to domestic disturbance or domestic violence calls, accounting for roughly 8.5% of the total number of officers killed during that period, according to an FBI database.
When a law enforcement officer steps onto the scene of a domestic incident, they are often faced with a highly charged, tense, emotional environment. Alleged perpetrators may be intoxicated or under the influence of other substances. They may also be armed and dangerous, feeling that they have little to lose in a confrontation with officers.
