Break the Silence on Domestic Violence

MARCH 4, 2015

Silence-Hides-Violence Domestic violence is getting attacked from all sides. In a three-front war against domes-tic violence, South Carolina political leaders, law enforcement, and victim advocates are coordinating a strategy to reduce violence in the home by targeting three areas: the criminal justice system, services for victims and offenders, and community awareness. Domestic violence is a cultural issue, and as long as we tolerate it, it will continue to plague our families and neighbors.

The Attorney General’s office has recorded 36,000 cases of domestic violence as re-ported to law enforcement each year. Add to this number those cases that were not re-ported but kept secret, and we have evidence of a deeply ingrained cycle of abuse in our state. We need to talk about domestic violence.
