Domestic Violence Seminar

Around 200 law enforcement officers nationwide are killed each year while responding to domestic violence calls and a veteran cop in Alabama is on a mission to lower that number.

Montgomery Police Lieutenant Steve Searcy is a nationally respected expert on domestic violence.

Searcy held a daylong seminar in Geneva for law enforcement and social service employees Thursday.

He says domestic violence usually just doesn't happen overnight.

It’s a matter with deep psychological implications and knowing the root of the problem may help defuse a deadly situation.

Searcy puts on domestic violence seminars across the country each year.

His goal is to save lives needlessly taken when emotions boil over.
