Violence and Abuse
New police recruits at the Pat Thomas Law Enforcement Academy in Midway in Florida are receiving instruction in the prevention of domestic violence—in their own homes—under a program believed to be the first of its kind in Florida. Following research that shows higher incidences of domestic violence among officers than the general public, the curriculum is aimed at educating the new recruits about the consequences and prevention of domestic violence at home, and ensuring that they understand how the stresses of their career can lead to domestic incidents.
