Jones County officers get a refresher on domestic violence laws

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

Jones County law enforcement officers are freshening up on the law to better assist victims of domestic violence.

Wednesday, the Laurel Police Department hosted a seminar to educate officers on how the law has changed over the last couple of years. Authorities said the law is much stiffer now when it comes to stalking and strangulation.

Police say millions of people are victims of domestic violence but never report it.
