Women who have been victimized by violence are a Toronto Police Service Priority. Police Chief William Blair believes that the Toronto Police Service must continue to work closely with their community partners to ensure that victims of domestic violence and their children get the help and support they need to leave abusive relationships and rebuild their lives.
Det. John Valerio is the TPS Domestic Violence Coordinator in the Family Services Section of the Divisional Policing Support Unit. The officers assigned to this unit are responsible for community and divisional support in the areas of domestic violence, child abuse, elder abuse, mental health and victim/witness support.
