Batterers with Badges: Officer-Involved Domestic Violence

General Material
Published Date
January, 2005

"This article looks at OIDV, examining why it seems particularly resistant to reduction, and recommending ways in which policies can more effectively target it. Part I gives a brief overview of DV in general, while Part II describes the problem of OIDV, including its prevalence and particular difficulties associated with it. Part III looks at the current law and policies designed to address DV generally and OIDV in particular, and part IV discusses why they have failed to make the strides expected. Finally, Part V suggests changes necessary in order to make the current law and policies effective in reducing OIDV."
