Domestic violence is one of the most common of all crimes and battering is the single major cause of injury to women. The Forsyth County Sheriff's Office has established a Domestic Violence Unit. Its goals are to provide protection through aggressive prosecution, to end the cycle of violence, and to help victims understand they are not alone and that there is help.

For additional information, please contact the Domestic Violence Unit at (336) 917-7009. To report domestic violence in progress, call 911.
