The Exit Site Button
The Exit button at the top of this page will Exit you from the police web site quickly.
It also deactivates the "back" button so an immediate return back to the police web site is not possible.
It does not remove your browser history.
If you think your computer use is being monitored - you may want to remove the browser history.
The e-safety web site can assist with how to do this.
What is technology-facilitated family violence?
The use of technology, by an abuser to frighten control or intimidate, can make family violence appear different, but the goals and motives are still the same: it is another way to control and take power away.
Technology-facilitated abuse occurs both during relationships and after separation.
Always call Triple Zero (000) for immediate assistance in an emergency.
If you have made a report of family violence, seek the advice of the police officer you are working with, electronic abuse sometimes can be used for evidence.
If your partner or ex-partner is using violence and abuse, and they initially set up your phone or computer, it would be wise to seek some safety and technology advice from the links below.
In an emergency call Triple Zero (000).
