Domestic Abuse

If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, call 911.

What is domestic abuse?

An offense under the United States Code, the Uniform Code of Military Justice, or state law that involves the use, attempted use, or threatened use of force or violence against a person or a violation of a lawful order issued for the protection of a person who is (a) A current or former spouse; (b) A person with whom the abuser shares a child in common; or (c) A current or former intimate partner with whom the abuser shares or has shared a common domicile.

The military allows two reporting options for domestic abuse:

Unrestricted reporting is available for victims of domestic abuse who want to pursue an official investigation of an incident.  A report may be made by:

  • Calling 706-791-STOP (7867)
  • Visiting a victim advocate in Darling Hall, Suite 224
  • Calling local law enforcement
  • Contacting the service member’s unit commander

Restricted reporting allows an adult victim of domestic abuse to disclose the details of his or her abuse to specifically identified individuals and receive medical treatment and victim advocacy services without requiring that notice be provided to the victim’s or alleged offender’s commander or law enforcement. Victims must report the abuse by:

  • Calling 706-791-STOP (7867)
  • Visiting a victim advocate in Darling Hall, Suite 224
  • Making a report to a health care provider
