Domestic violence does not discriminate against race, class, gender, religious affiliation, age, economic status, or lifestyle choice.
Domestic violence prosecution is a priority of this office. The County Board of Supervisors also consistently supports our efforts and has the only Zero Tolerance Program in the state.
