Mudgee's Top Cop, Inspector Mark Fehon, has told 2MG that while domestic Violence is still an issue in the Mid-Western area.

However, he mentions that the act of reporting a violence incident has risen steadily.

"The good thing about the numbers for us, is that people are actually reporting domestic violence".

Inspector Fehon also says that "Unfortunately there's a lot of victims out there and sometimes we don't hear about it, but the more is reported the more we know about what is happening in our community".

He also told Ken Sutcliffe that even if you know of it happening to someone, you CAN report the problem confidentially.

"You can always contact the Mudgee police station for help and to pass on information. You may not see what we do behind the scenes, but we definitely action on the information provided to us".

You can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously, on 1800 333 000.
