Officers receive training in domestic violence cases

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Officers from Region 8 police and sheriff's departments came to the Jonesboro Police Department to learn more about handling domestic violence cases.

According to Terri Berger Program Coordinator with the Arkansas Coalition Against Domestic Violence, officers gathered to receive an overview of the new and current domestic violence laws.

Other topics discussed included characteristics of a batterer, survival skills for the victims, law enforcement response, and  orders of protection and crime victim's rights.

Berger says this type of education brings understanding of the problem to officers and alerts them to signs of abuse.
