Law enforcement in Brown Co. are going through special training aimed at saving the lives of domestic abuse victims.
Officers will have 11 questions to ask victims when they’re investigating a domestic violence complaint.
Questions range from if their abuser tried to choke them? Do they follow them? Have they threatened to kill them? and is the abuser unemployed?
Karen Michaels is the executive director of Golden House domestic abuse shelter in Green Bay. She says if officers believe the situation is high-risk they will immediately connect the victim with a Golden House advocate.
Police say that process in the past could have taken up to a day.
