Ali A Rahmatian Ph.D. Graduate Faculty, Criminal Justic Program Florida Metropolitan University The purpose of this paper is to describe domestic violence which is a widespread problem affecting families, law enforcement agencies, and the court system Studies investigating the effects of arrests on recidivism in domestic violence cases have led to the implementation of pro-arrest policies in many police agencies. The changing policies have lead to an increase in the number ol domestic violence cases in the court system with limited prosecution of these cases. Police training in the specific dynamics of domestic violence is believed to provide officers with skills necessary in handling these calls safely and accurately, The Lakeland Police Department has developed a comprehensive community project, the Domestic Abuse Response Team (DART), that is designed to reduce the recidivism of domestic violence .in order to serve the victims more efficiently. Examination of components of this program may help to target specific aspects of the training that are useful in reducing recidivism rates, Specific attention is paid to concepts, theories, and models that support the findings that batterers and victims are reacting in a manner they have learned through their family environment and as part of a pattern or cycle of violence in which the abuse is expressed.
