The fourth week of the “Broken Wings” National Caravan began in Craiova, in Centrul Multifuncțional Craiova’s Nicolae Titulescu conference room.
The Police County Inspectorate in Dolj, represented by Mr. Stanca Giucă, police chief commissioner – Department for Crime Prevention, Research and Analysis, Mr. Mihai Stoian, police chief commissioner – Chief of the Police Patrol Department, Mr. Cătălin Dochia, main police inspector and IPJ Dolj spokesman, and Mr. Gabriel Tănasie, main police officer – Community Police Department, participated, along with Necuvinte Association, in the event and debated, along with Mrs. Irina Gruia, psychotherapist, and representatives of the public institutions, of DGASPC in Dolj, the gendarmerie in Dolj, and of the NGOs in Craiova, the issue of domestic violence.
Mr. Gabriel Tănasie from the Community Police Department presented a series of cases on domestic violence from 2017, among which there was also a case in which, after seven withdrawn complaints by the victim, the eighth one, which was no longer withdrawn, ended with the arrest, for thirty days, and eventually with the sentencing of the assailant. An additional example that the withdrawal of the complaints does not lead to the end of the abusive behavior but, on the contrary, to its aggravation. This brings us hope that in Dolj county the victims of domestic violence find support and help at the police station.
The comparative study regarding the protective order for 2015 and 2016 shows that the number of requests for a protective order, as well as the amount of granted orders, have increased.
Mr. Mihai Stoian, chief inspector of the Dolj Police Patrol Department, declared that the issue of domestic violence is a priority for the Romanian Police, both at a national level, and at the level of Dolj county, and that this phenomenon registered a decrease in the crime rate within the first half of 2017, compared to the same period of 2016. As such, the amount of attempted murders decreased with 100%, family abandonment decreased with 11.4%, murder with 29%, and no bodily injury and battery leading to death crimes were registered.
We thank Dolj County Police Inspectorate for the involvement, for the creation of campaigns and prevention programs against domestic violence, and for the collaboration within the “Broken Wings” national campaign.
