Police can prevent domestic violence.

The police can prevent domestic violence by screening the people that were abused by the abuser, or they can screen the abuser and find out what happen and they can always put the abuser in jail. For example in the article "Police Officers Can Prevent Repeat Abuse by Directing Victims to Available Sources" it says "The lethality screen helps officers delve deeper to better understand a situation and recognize the danger signs predictive of homicide, or as the LAP information packet says, officers learn to read the danger signs." This means that the police can use the screening test to find out why they did it and also they can put them in jail.

Prevent Bad Social Medias

To prevent domestic violence we should stop listening to rap music and stop playing violent games because it convinces others to kill others or do drugs. For example, some video games have violence in it and sometimes kids get into that games so much that they start hurting others. For example in the article "Rap Music and Its Violent Progeny: America's Culture of VIolence..." it say's "America's urban centers in general and low-income minority communities in particular, are replete with poverty, police brutality, drug abuse, educational inequality, high dropout rates, and violence. The very governmental and social systems theoretically established to protect the poor, have engendered distrust. A sense of powerlessness to change conditions grounded in complex social, political, and economic issues has led artists to seek ways to express their discontent." This tells you that because of this there has been lots of consequences for example high dropout rate, violence, drug abuse. etc.

The laws can prevent domestic violence

The laws can prevent domestic violence by having a judge put a restraining order so you won't have to worry for the abuser to come after you. Also you can call the police and explain whatever happen. For example in the article "Can the Law Help Protect Me From Domestic Violence?" it says "The judge can order the restrained person to stay away from the children’s school, the family home and any other location where they may be in jeopardy."

This means that the judge can put a restraining order so you won't have to worry to get abused by the abuser.
