Domestic violence can happen to anyone, anywhere, at anytime regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, gender or age. The Milton Police Department takes this type of crime very seriously while simultaneously working to ensure the privacy and safety of the victim. The Milton Police Department is committed to responding to these calls with professionalism, care, sensitivity and understands that not only are the victims affected but children can be as well. Statistics also reveal that children who witness violence are significantly more likely to suffer emotional trauma which can lead to addictions, anxiety and decreased self-esteem.
