How Does Law Enforcement Determine Who The Aggressor Was In A Domestic Violence-Related Incident?
Attorney Myles L. Berman explains to determine the identity of the aggressor, the officer will gather information from the 911 dispatcher and through observations made via the interactions with those involved as well as any witnesses. In some cases, both parties are deemed aggressors. If the police cannot determine the identity of the aggressor then both parties might be arrested. The determinations made by police officers are not always correct. Domestic violence situations involve high levels of emotions so the officers don’t always have an exact understanding of what’s transpired. Contact Top Gun Criminal Defense Attorney Myles L.
