Domestic Violence


If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, call 9-1-1.

Nearly three out of four (74%) of Americans personally know someone who is or has been a victim of domestic violence. Domestic violence touches the lives of Americans of all ages, leaving a devastating impact on women, men, and children of every background and circumstance. October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Help us raise awareness about domestic violence and join in our efforts to end violence.

All victims and witnesses of crime are encouraged to file a police report first.  To file a police report, go to the nearest police station or call Police Non-Emergency at (415) 553-0123 for an officer to be dispatched to come and take the report.

If you need assistance in another language or are not sure who to call for the service you need, dial 3-1-1 (within SF only) or (415) 701-2311; TTY direct (415) 701-2323.
