Survivor Stories

Fear of Police Officer Husband

I live every day in fear, for I am still in and surviving my abusive marriage. I am married to a police officer, who takes his anger out on me every single day. No one knows the type of fear that I feel, except those who have been through the same thing that I have been through. I have met many other women who are either currently married or formerly married to abusive officers. As we all know, it is a long and difficult journey……..and my journey has just begun.

There are no resources to help women like myself, who are married to those with powerful positions like that of a police officer. The pain is indescribable!

Officers know how to use their powers to the fullest…..and how to manipulate every single person…….

I fear for my children as well, and fear that he will take them, as he has often threatened to do.

No one will listen to me. No one seems to care, except other women who have suffered abuse at the hand of a police officer.
