    Very lucky. DV calls are a real hazard. Prayers for his recovery.

    There is no easy way out of a Domestic Violence call. Usually alcohol or drug use is present, emotions are flaring and people get caught up in the heat of the moment. Someone usually goes to jail and the extreme cases, someone gets wounded or killed.

    I have a friend who works for the Jacksonville FL PD. I went on a citizens ride with him. I saw firsthand just how bad DV calls are.

    Hope the officer recovers fully.

    Domestic Violence calls are some of the most dangerous situations an Officer can face.
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    Glad the officer is recovering nicely.
    This is one of the instances where I feel good information is tantamount to officer safety.

    Every little bit of info the PD can obtain would be invaluable.
    Does the house have neighbors in the immediate vicinity? Could they be contacted prior to the officer arriving on scene, to possibly give insight as to what they may hear or see about the specific call, etc, etc......

    Hope the officer has a speedy recovery! Hope the BG gets well and faces the death penalty. Let the face of the cop be the last one he see's.
