The Campbell River RCMP says support is there for domestic abuse victims.
Last month, police in Campbell River responded to 48 reports related to domestic violence.
That marks a four-file decrease from June 2019.
Last June, 20 of the files were actual assaults whereas this past June, the number of actual assaults dropped to 15.
Campbell River RCMP spokesman, Const. Maury Tyre, says a key step in stopping the abuse is reaching out for help.
“If you or someone you know is involved in an abusive relationship, please seek assistance. Once abuse begins, it is rare that it will stop without some sort of intervention.”
If you are the victim of domestic violence you’re urged to call the Campbell River RCMP at 250-286-6221, or in an emergency call 911.
