What can I do to be safe?

What can I do to be safe? 

Come up with a safety plan and decide how you will escape more violence.  This includes where you will go, how you will get there, and what will you take.

Let friends and neighbors know about what is going on so they may assist you in calling the police if something happens.

During a violent episode, call the police and provide them with as much information as possible.  They must respond and investigate your complaint.

If you believe you have been or might become a victim of domestic violence, obtain a TRO and strictly enforce it.
