VIOLENCE IN THE FAMILY - CHARACTERISATION OF THE PHENOMENON IN THE LUBLIN REGION ON THE BASIS OF THE DATA FROM THE POLICE (Polish title below)
(Polish title: Przemoc w rodzinie - charakterystyka zjawiska na terenie wojewodztwa lubelskiego na podstawie analizy danych udostepnionych przez policje). The issue of domestic violence has been widely described - its specific character, variety of aspects involved, its epidemiology and the influence of violence on psychological functions of the family. Then the results of analyses of police reports with data referring to the range of violence in Lublin region were presented. The results have been critically discussed and have led to the following conclusions: the number of police interventions in Lublin region is increasing every year, which means that on one hand the rate of violence is unfortunately getting bigger , and on the other hand the awareness of victims and their trust in the police institution hopefully increase; the highest in numbers are women victims, children are next; victims that come from villages less frequently turn to the police for help in the case of violence; violence is more intense in families with alcoholic problems.
