     Domestic violence is more than just a ""family problem""; it is a crime. The Revere Police Department recognizes that domestic violence is a major problem in Revere and throughout the United States. Each year, more than two million women are victims of domestic violence, and one million children are physically abused.

     In Massachusetts, it is a crime for any person to threaten, beat, sexually assault or otherwise harm another person, even if they are married. Battering is not exclusively a crime against women, but they are the majority affected.

     One of every two families in the United States is involved in domestic violence at some time. Domestic violence is a repetitive pattern in people%uFFFDs lives. Victims or witnesses of domestic violence in childhood are mostly likely to repeat such acts as adults.

     The current incidence of domestic violence cannot be tolerated. Too many women are beaten. Too many children are abused. Too many homes are battlegrounds. There is a way out! Victims do not need to submit and lead a life of tension between calm and storm.

     If you are a victim of domestic violence, now is the time to start thinking about protecting yourself. The fact that you are seeking assistance is a very good sign. It means you are seriously considering your situation. Calling the police, telling a friend, or contacting a shelter is the first step. Please don%uFFFDt wait until it is too late. Many studies show that an uninterrupted cycle of violence only worsens over time. Hotlines and shelters are there to be used and counseling is available. It%uFFFDs as close as a phone call and it%uFFFDs free. Let us help you.
