Law enforcement teams up to change domestic violence policy

South Texas law enforcement agencies are teaming up in order to try and change the policy of domestic violence cases.

It can take almost a year from when police respond to a domestic violence call to when the case makes it to court. During such a long period of time, people move and change their contact information and it becomes really hard to get in touch with the victims.

The police department in Corpus Christi along with the district attorney’s office are hoping that they can change this by having a counselor stay in touch with the victim and help them find the resources that they will need during this difficult time.

Also, a one-hour class on the cycle of abuse has become mandatory if a victim wants to drop the charges. This is done in order for the victim to make sure that they are making the right choice.

If you or a loved one has been charged with domestic violence, you need experienced representation on your side. Contact the Dallas domestic abuse lawyers of the Law Office of Mark T. Lassiter today by calling (214) 845-7007 today.
