    Domestic Violence victims who were under COVID quarantine with their abusers found it even more difficult to reach out for help. As more and more people were trapped inside with their abusers, being able to ask for help became crucial to their safety.

    Shelters around the country have been and remain very full, especially given the need to reduce capacity to maintain social distancing. Add to that the fact that gun sales are setting records, advocates for Intimate Partner abuse victims are concerned things will only get worse.

    Reports of domestic abuse spiked by about 30% since France into lockdown in mid-March and local experts in Maricopa County have confirmed similar increases with the Mesa and Tempe Arizona Police Departments.

    During this webinar, experts from the medical and legal community in Maricopa County (Arizona) will share their observations about the COVID pandemic’s impact on Domestic Violence, as well as what criminal justice professionals can learn about Domestic Violence in light of the pandemic’s impact on society.
