First line of defense


Police have stated that the presence of a forensic nurse tends to have a calming effect on both parties in a domestic violence situation. This sounds like a great solution in defusing a potentially dangerous situation. My husband, a retired police officer in the late 70’s, early 80’s says this would have been extremely beneficial in dealing with domestic violence. It would seem that the presence of a nurse, a female, would be perceived as less threatening to both the male and female, allowing for more trust to be established with officers and the nurse.
