The reason I became a police officer — the police saved my mother’s life. 

“I know personally that it’s not just as simple as walking out the door,” says a policewoman with personal experience growing up in a violent home.

Coming from a violent home myself I have seen the devastating effects it had, and is still having on my family. I get that it can be a challenge to leave because my mum tried numerous times before she finally got away from my dad.

I know personally that it’s not just as simple as walking out the door it’s far more complicated and I understand that these challenges can stop people from asking for help.”
