Technology Aides the Protection of Children and Domestic Violence

Technology has been changing our lives for the better, as communication, information, and education are easily conducted quickly and efficiently.  In some locations, technology is even used to help protect children from domestic violence.  

Video Cameras and recording devices are being used by police and case workers to produce a record of testimony and conditions after a reported domestic violence dispute.  Such recordings are now utilized in cases to prosecute offenders, where in the past, victims had to face them in court and other legal proceedings, often leading to refusal to cooperate for fear of the offender.  
Jurisdictions that are using such technology are finding that many more guilty pleas and convictions are being obtained against offenders, greatly increasing the quality of life for children and victims who often do not have a voice.  This has also lead to many less cases of repeat offenders, a great sign that the technology is working.
