Domestic Violence calls are among the most dangerous 911 calls that Boston Police Officers encounter every day. Officers Assigned to District A-7 (East Boston) reinforced this when they made an arrest of a male suspect, where a firearm was involved.

THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: You are not alone, and no one deserves to be abused. To those in need of help, there are resources available to you. Please reach out if you, or someone you know, is in need of help or safety planning.

In the case of an emergency, CALL 9-1-1.
