An epidemic: a series on domestic violence in Del Norte County

Editor’s note: The identities of domestic abuse victims are not being disclosed in an effort to protect them from further violence.

For many people living in Del Norte County today, it’s a crisis. For others, it’s become normal, part of surviving. 

Often hidden behind closed doors, sometimes ignored by onlookers, domestic violence is undeniably woven into life here.

And it’s reported here at a higher rate than anywhere else in California.

Lately, Del Norters call police to report domestic violence eight times more frequently than the statewide average. Five years ago, this county’s call volume was right at the state average, around 6 out of every 1,000 calls to police.
