Troy police in training to help fight domestic violence
TROY, N.Y. --Troy Police Department has announced a new initiative
to help fight domestic violence Monday.
Members of the force are being trained all thanks to a grant.
The training will allow officers to do a lethality assessment when they get to
the scene of a domestic violence incident.
Troy police tell NEWS10 this will let them deal with the
problem immediately and get their victim to a safe environment as soon as possible.
"What this program will offer us now is instantaneous
access for the victim to services. No longer will we have to leave the house
hoping that a call is made the next morning or awaiting the results of a visit
by an advocate within a day or 2. We
know that night at the time that the violence has escalated to its highest
point - that the victim will be referred to absolute services," says Capt. John
Cooney of the Troy Police Dept.
Troy is the first New York State police agency to take
part in this program.
