"Even apparently trivial cases of domestic violence can have significant repercussions to the accused, the family unit and society as a whole".
In Alberta, allegations involving domestic violence receive special attention from the Court, Crown and law enforcement. In Calgary, there is a specialized domestic violence courtroom, populated by specifically designated prosecutors who operate alongside the Calgary Police Service, Victim’s Assistance and other State funded organizations, such as HomeFront. The domestic violence guideline is victim orientated.
What distinguishes domestic violence offences from other similar charges is the relationship between the parties. Though domestic violence protocols are generally activated in circumstances of cohabitation, the specialized court is often used in situations involving close personal relationships where the parties reside separate and apart. Domestic violence generally embraces offences such as assault, uttering threats, mischief and criminal harassment.
