No matter who you are or where you live in Johnson County,
domestic violence charges are taken very seriously, and the district attorney will exhaust
all resources to see that offenders are prosecuted to the fullest extent
of the law. In fact, Kansas law requires an arrest be made on all domestic
violence calls. That means if you and your spouse, or any other family
member, are involved in a heated dispute that is believed to have turned
violent, the police are required to make an arrest.
In fact, according to the Domestic Violence Model Law Enforcement Response
Policy, law enforcement officials are expected to respond to a domestic
violence call by giving protection and support to all adult and/or child
victims of the domestic violence, ensuring the safety of their officers,
thoroughly investigating the alleged charges and "effect an arrest
of the person that the officer has probably cause to believe committed
a crime or offense involving domestic violence...". It is because
of this fact that sometimes unfair arrests can be made.
