Skip Navigation LinksCrime Victim Information : Law Enforcement Incident Information

It is a crime for any person to cause any physical injury or harm, even if that person is a member or former member of your family or household.  Please tell the investigating peace officer:

If you, your child or any other household resident has been injured.  If you believe you will be in danger after the officer(s) leaves.   You have a right to:

  • Ask the local prosecutor to file a criminal complaint against the person committing family violence.
  • Apply to a court for an order to protect you.  To do so, you should consult a legal aid office, a prosecuting attorney or a private attorney.

For example, the court can enter an order that:

  • The abuser not commit further acts of violence.
  • The abuser not threaten, harass or contact you at home.
  • Directs the abuser to leave your household.
  • Establishes temporary custody of your children and directs the abuser not to interfere with your children or any property.

A violation of certain provisions of court ordered protection (such as 1 and 2 above) is a criminal offense.
