Using your assigned readings and the additional resources provided about intimate partner violence as reference points, determine whether your jurisdictions (Omaha, NE, Douglas County) have policies and procedures in place for issuing “protection orders”. Detail these provisions and develop a position paper examining the effectiveness of “protection orders” by citing recent and relevant sources in support of your position.
Three in ten women experience intimate partner violence, and two out of ten men undergo the same. The issue has become a rampant one, especially in Omaha, NE, Douglas County and other parts of the country. The violence encompasses physical, sexual and psychological torture, which is inflicted by the spouse or partner. It is estimated that about 39% of women and 25% of men have experienced some form of violence in the form of physical, emotional or sexual in their lifetime (Sugg, 2015). Most of the victims are older regarding age. However, there are those that are subjected to the form of forcefulness at a tender age such as teenagers. Around 16% females and 5% male students have undergone physical violence while they were dating (Sugg, 2015). As well, 18% of the females and 6% of the male who are high school students have experienced sexual assault from the people they were courting (Wright, 2015). Therefore, intimate violence does not necessarily entail or happen between married people. The paper aims to identify the various jurisdictions and determine whether or not they have policies and procedures for placing protection orders. Furthermore, it will take a stand on the issue and examine the effectiveness of the orders.
