The infliction of physical injury by a family member or household member on another is known as domestic violence. Domestic violence can be directed towards a child, spouse, ex-spouse, girlfriend, boyfriend, or any other relative, regardless of age, gender, or race. Domestic violence includes physical abuse, threats, verbal abuse, sexual abuse, and economic coercion. Domestic violence is a crime that gets a lot of attention from the public. Due to this, law enforcement officers aggressively pursue arrests and convictions in domestic violence cases. An officer will likely make an arrest if there is even a slight clue that domestic violence could be a factor. Many domestic violence cases go to trial, whether the victim chooses to pursue the case or not.
