Domestic Violence and Mandatory Arrest: Influences on Police Officer Actions

By John F. Waldron | Go to book overview

CHAPTER 5
Discussion and Conclusions
Regarding Domestic Violence

MAJOR FINDINGS
Despite mandates for annual in-service training on domestic violence for all police officers, many officers do not receive this training as prescribed by law.
Increased frequency of in-service training enhances enforcement of domestic violence laws even when that training is not directly related to domestic violence enforcement.
Police officers in a mandatory arrest jurisdiction for the enforcement of domestic violence laws rely heavily on their perception of the law to justify their enforcement activities.
There are significant correlations between a police officer’s personal and professional positive opinions toward the enforcement of domestic violence legislation and his actions in mandatory arrest domestic violence situations.
When police officers observe a domestic violence offense in a mandatory arrest jurisdiction, they are more likely to make an arrest than when they must rely on victim statements or physical evidence.
Victim’s wishes and opinions on the enforcement of domestic violence laws have little effect on the arrest outcome in mandatory arrest jurisdictions, according to both officer’s opinions and their reactions to hypothetical situations.
