Over 420 intimate partner violence calls to northeast OPP in April

Ontario Provincial Police are giving a snapshot of intimate partner violence in the northeast.
The OPP says over 420 occurrences were investigated in April, with 121 resulting in criminal charges.

The James Bay detachments – that’s Kapuskasing, Hearst, Cochrane  and Moosonee — had more than one-fifth of all the calls, at 88.  The South Porcupine detachment, including Iroquois Falls, recorded 15.

Police say victims in abusive relationships are not alone.

They add if you are in an abusive relationship or know someone who is, 211 is a helpline that easily connects people to the social services, programs and community supports they need.
The OPP says toll-free calls can also be made to the Assaulted Women’s Helpline at 1-866-863-0511 where your information will remain anonymous and confidential.
