“Domestic violence affects families all across Long Island. It’s a serious crime which can leave both physical and emotional scars on its victims. Through this funding, the Amityville and Freeport Police Departments will be able to provide their officers with enhanced training dealing specifically with domestic violence, so that they can better protect victims and put domestic abusers behind bars,” said Senator Fuschillo.
