There is no doubt that the incidents of domestic violence have risen, and continue to be a problem in our society. Time after time, police are called to the scene to control the escalation of abuse. They use a variety of methods to respond to the problem. Social workers, psychologists, police officers, and other professionals have their own idea of what works best on these cases to stop the violence from occurring again. Each has a way of influencing the police, and law enforcement system, so that their method gets used. What interventions are successful in deterring further abuse is an important question for study.
