Under Utah law, domestic violence is defined as a pattern of abusive behavior of one partner towards another. An arrest may be made if there is probable cause that the abuser has recently injured the victim, violated a protective order or if the accused may hurt the victim again. Utah courts take domestic violence seriously. For further information on getting help, visit SLC’s police page about domestic abuse.
