Family Violence Center
125 East Gish Road
San Jose, CA. 95112
The City of San Jose has identified the instances of violence in the family as a growing problem in our society. The San Jose Police Department maintains the attitude that violent behavior in the home is considered criminal and is not to be tolerated. The Department facilitates this aggressive stance by strictly enforcing the laws meant to protect victims and their families and by utilizing the referral services provided by the community. The goal of the Family Violence Center is to address family violence issues by serving as the core for a multi-agency effort. The Family Violence Unit focuses on three areas of behavior which most often victimize the family. The investigative units specifically address domestic violence, child/elder abuse and threat management (stalking). The center is staffed by representatives of the District Attorney's Office, Adult Probation, Child Protective Services, Police Department, and a victim advocate from Next Door, Solutions to Domestic Violence. This cooperative effort provides all the support services available to victims of family violence in a safe and friendly environment.
