Part 2: Tuesday, Nov. 25
Some women say Ottawa police aren't enforcing the policy of pursuing criminal charges when there are reasonable grounds to do so, and that it's putting women at risk.
Staff Sgt. Isobel Granger, who runs the partner assault unit, says her unit must have enough evidence to pursue charges.
She also says her unit's investigators are overworked.
Part 3: Wednesday, Nov. 26
A man who admits to emotionally and physically abusing his former partner says treatment has helped him accept responsibility for and own up to what he did.
Paul Arguin was arrested and the court ordered him to undergo treatment at New Directions, a group counselling program for domestic abusers.
It changed his way of thinking, Arguin said.
