As a result of the pandemic, law enforcement agencies have seen an increase in domestic violence-related calls. But not all domestic batterers are the same. Psychological and criminal justice research has revealed at least four major types of domestic batterers exist. These batterer types differ in how they develop and offend. They differ in how they respond to arrest, probation, counseling, and incarceration. Therefore, it is likely each of these four batterer types has responded to the conditions of the pandemic differently. This webinar will discuss the characteristics of the four batterer types, how each behaves under normal conditions, and how the conditions of the pandemic will influence the offending behaviors of each offender type. This webinar is designed for law enforcement officers and victim advocates who deal with DV investigations, prosecutors and judges who handle DV cases, and probation and counseling personnel who work to help offenders avoid recidivating. It will provide greater awareness about how the conditions of the pandemic have put more victims at risk of significant physical abuse.
