Domestic Violence

The Fredericksburg Police Department is committed to assisting victims and their families in situations where all hope may seem lost. It can be terrifying for a victim to tell a complete stranger about the abuse they have experienced. It is the goal of the Fredericksburg Police Department to make every victim feel comfortable and empowered to share his or her story.

The Police Department regularly partners with Empowerhouse and the Rappahannock Council Against Sexual Assault (RCASA) to assist in its efforts to help survivors in their healing process. Please visit these organization's websites for additional information and resources.

If you are a victim or know someone who is a victim of domestic violence, please don’t wait to contact the police. Reach out to your local law enforcement agency and ask for assistance.
