Calgary police got more than 16,000 domestic violence calls last year and a senior officer would like to get more because he believes the crime is under reported. The focus on domestic violence is back following recent events in the city.
Superintendent Sat Parhar says he joined the police service to help people and it hurts when help isn't on time or early enough to deal with a situation. He's calling on members of the public to speak up when they see issues of domestic violence. He says "To start the process, we need people to step up. We need people to get ahead of this, when I say don't wait, then put it on us, if you wait, you're putting it on yourself" Parhar also says more officers are required to deal with the issue of domestic violence.
