  1. Can anyone help me find other victims of police officer DV that I can network with? It is very difficult to navigate this specific type of victimization alone.

    Thank you!

    1. We have had some messy situations by bringing victims together. If secrets or critical information is shared with others who make up with their cop abuser, for example, then your info and safety may be compromised. It's easier for survivors to come together to support each other. one of the reasons I want to put all this information out here is so that people can read up and see other people's situations and learn from them.
