A specialized Domestic Violence Prosecution Unit, in coordination with other community agencies, provides the best opportunity to achieve the following goals:
  • To stop the violence.
  • To protect the victim from additional acts of violence committed by the Defendant.
  • To protect the children or other family members from exposure to, or possible injury from, domestic violence.
  • To provide restitution to the victims.
  • To hold the offender accountable for their violent conduct.
Policy:

The State of Nebraska has a critical interest in reducing the number of incidents of domestic violence and increasing the number of positive results in domestic violence prosecutions.  

It is the position of the Buffalo County Attorney that the aggressive prosecution of domestic violence is necessary to protect victims and future victims of domestic violence.
