It's the deep, dark secret within the rank and file of Law Enforcement Agencies across America: Some of the same officers who are supposed to be breaking up domestic disputes in this country are abusing their own wives and girlfriends. Many police departments continuing to look the other way. Susan Murphy Milano said, "I am the daughter of a Chicago Violent Crimes Detective whose father murdered her mother before taking his own life. I will not rest until those who abuse and kill are held accountable.

Recently, I received a lot of emails and letters from women married to Law Enforcement Officers Across the Country with no place to turn for assistance. All because a husband or boyfriend was a respected law enforcement officer. There is no excuse for violence, especially in a police officers home.

Why aren't departments seeking a zero-tolerance policy on domestic violence committed by police officers? Is it too embarrassing? Family members rarely come forward to report these crimes and if they do, they are often victimized even more by their abusive officer spouse or boyfriend.

" He was going to kill me. How can you let him keep his gun and stay on the street?" (Wife of Boston Police Officer)

" When a police department does not take action, we, the families of officers feel powerless and worried about our own lives and the safety of their kids. All this does is further victimize us, when will it end?" (Wife of a New York State Tropper)

Another Wife of an officer said "You know the words on the side of police cars "We Serve And Protect", let me tell you every time I see that I'm sick with grief. It doesn't apply to me. It should read, "hey, we serve and protect our own"!

The women say that when they notified police, investigating officers were reluctant to pursue the cases. Evidence was mishandled. Some of the women were pressured by other officers or top brass to drop their complaints. "I was treated like a criminal, I was trying to get some help here," said another. The silence regarding cops who abuse and even kill their spouses is deafening...just this week there was another shocking case in the headlines.

Who do you call when your husband, the police officer, is beating the hell out of you?
