Domestic Violence Calls Too Common

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Local police officers say domestic violence cases are unpredicatable and tragic. They say that while there is a lot of information on the issue, the calls keep coming in.

Just today, the Attorney General's Office sent a representative to the Tri-Cities to talk about the issue. 

 Richland Police estimate that they get at least one domestic call a day, and they never know what to expect. It could be anything from a simple argument to something as violent as a shooting.

Cpl. Bryce Henry of Richland Police says, "There's so many factors that you kind of go into it blind."

Cpl. Todd Dronen of Kennewick Police says, "There is no profile for someone committing domestic violence. It could be anyone, in any part of town, with any education level."

Kennewick Police say looking on the internet is also a good way to get domestic violence information. The "Power and Control Wheel" is a tool that gives you the signs of domestic violence.

They say if you or someone you know is inolved in domestic violence you should call police immediately.
