What is the Domestic Violence Policy of the Franklin County Sheriff Office?

It is the policy of the Franklin County Sheriff Office to view domestic violence as a crime which requires direct intervention and a coordinated community response. The objective of the patrol officer who responds to a domestic incident is to reduce the possibility of violence and threats towards the victim and other involved individuals, conduct a thorough on-scene investigation, and provide the victim with information enabling them to seek assistance from community agencies.

A clear and consistent response to domestic violence can protect victims and their families from immediate danger, assist in connecting them with the resources and services that they require, and communicate the message that domestic violence is unacceptable in our community.
