Of all the Police Departments in Rhode Island, in my opinion the Cumberland Police are as aggressive as any in arresting and prosecuting crimes involving Domestic Violence. The Town of Cumberland, bordering Massachusetts and Woonsocket, runs the gamut of socio-economic backgrounds. This makes matters more difficult for the Police when investigating allegations of domestic violence. To make matters worse, in an effort to protect the victims of true domestic violence our lawmakers have enacted “mandatory” arrest laws which force the Cumberland Police to make many arrests which, if left to their discretion, would not me made. These situations create cases which can be effectively navigated and disposed of with the skill and expertise of a Rhode Island Domestic Violence Lawyer.
