The first part of the study investigates an area in criminology that has not been scrutinized scientifically -- discretionary as well as systematic police actions in domestic disputes. The second part tackles the controversial issue of the dangerousness of enforcing domestic disturbances, and identifies conditions which are most likely to result in police assaults and injuries. The empirically identified risk factors are subsequently used to provide recommendations on police training and occupational safety.
