The Newport News Police Department employs two full-time advocates – the NNPD Domestic Violence Team - to bridge the gap between law enforcement and victim support.
Through victim advocacy and empowerment, the team assists individuals affected by domestic violence in their journey toward safety and stability. They also train officers to help them understand the challenges for people affected by domestic violence and help ensure officers and victims have positive interactions.
