Plea To Report Domestic Violence
8:00am 9th March 2014
Cornish families are urged not to dismiss domestic abuse - just because it is not physical.
It's as Pirate FM is told it takes up to 35 incidents in a home before it is reported.
Experts say it can come in the form of emotional and financial abuse too, which can be more damaging.
DCI John Trott fears some do not think it is serious enough to report: "People from all sorts of different backgrounds are affected. What is acceptable by one isn't acceptable by another and what people have grown up. All of these things make people think 'D'you know what? What I'm being subjected to isn't bad enough to report'
"Believe me it is. Please report it to us, because we can't do anything about it until then. If they report it at the first instance then we can help, not just through the police but through other agencies."
