Domestic violence common problem
Every 1 hour and 37 minutes, a crime of domestic violence is reported to police in Maine. Domestic violence does not discriminate. While students may consider domestic violence to be an issue of older adults, you may be surprised to know that women ages 16 to 24 experience the highest per capita rate of intimate partner violence. At some point in their lives, approximately one third of women report physical or sexual abuse by a husband or partner.
