The Domestic Violence Unit (DVU) currently has specially trained investigators assigned to handle family violence incidents in our city. This increasingly complicated area of law enforcement includes not only assaults, but also any criminal incident related to domestic violence, such as threats, stalking, and violations of Personal Protection Orders. This fiscal year, approximately 248 intimate partner domestic-related assault cases were assigned and reviewed by police investigators. Warrants are reviewed by the Wayne County Prosecutor Domestic Violence Unit.

The DVU is assisted, Monday – Friday, by an on-site Victim’s Advocate provided through FirstStep, a Wayne County domestic and sexual assault program funded by the Victims of Crime Act and other donations.
