Truro Police Department

domestic violence

                 Abuse happens among all groups of people regardless of income, education, occupation,

                 race, religion, age, or sexual preference. Abuse can occur in any relationship. An abuser

                 can be a partner or lover, boyfriend or girlfriend, caretaker, roommate, relative or friend.

                 Any forceful  controlling behavior is abuse. You do not have to be hit to be abused.

                 Taking away your money,  controlling where you go and what  you do, making you feel

                 bad about yourself are all forms of  abuse.  

   

CAN YOU ANSWER YES TO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING? 

Fearful of your life?         

Constantly being ridiculed?     

Concerned about personal safety? 

Not allowed to see friends or family       

Are your children being threatened in any way? 

Promised that violent behavior will not be repeated, and the promise is broken? 

If you answered yes to any of these questions then you may be in an abusive relationship. 
 

 

The Officers of the Truro Police Department are well trained to appropriately respond to and handle all 
domestic calls within the guidelines of the Family Abuse Law. This includes providing a safer environment, 
assisting with medical services, obtaining Abuse Prevention Orders, and directing those persons involved 
to specialized agencies for further support. There are cellular phones available for victims of Domestic 
Violence. These phones are preprogrammed to call 9-1-1 in the event of an emergency.
