Intimate Partner Violence (IPV)
Domestic violence, also known as Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is any criminal offense involving violence or physical harm or threat of violence or physical harm when committed by one cohabitant against another.

- Assistance with protective orders
- LINKline domestic violence crisis hotline
- Lethality Assessment Protocol (LAP) program utilized by law enforcement and victims advocates to assist and educate victims

Domestic violence, including domestic violence in the presence of children, is against the law and should be reported.
