“There is something that brings it home when we see family violence and when there are children involved,” she said. “This is very hurtful to police and the community and people waking up to this news are impacted by what’s happened.”

Sturko added a lot of work has been done over recent years to try and remove the stigma around reporting family and domestic violence to police.

However, many people often don’t know what’s going on behind closed doors,” she added.
