Report: Efforts to curb domestic violence having little impact

Despite efforts to curb domestic violence in New York State, an annual report shows little impact was made in 2010 compared with the previous year.

WOODBURY - Despite efforts to curb domestic violence in New York State, an annual report shows little impact was made in 2010 compared with the previous year.

According to the state Division of Criminal Justice Services, 144 people were killed in domestic violence homicides last year, including 14 on Long Island.

State officials say the purpose of the report is to use the data to better handle cases of domestic violence. They say that just this summer the state implemented improved training for police officers, both on the state and local levels, in hopes of finally bringing the numbers down.
