Domestic Violence Resources:
If you are experiencing abuse during the coronavirus crisis, you do not have to stay at home with your abuser. Contact the San Diego Family Justice Center (FJC) for legal support and victim services during the coronavirus crisis – 866-933-HOPE (4673).
The FJC remains open and offers remote services during the Stay At Home order to help victims of abuse get out of dangerous situations.
The FJC’s highly-trained team members will listen to your story, help you form a safety plan, and work with you to obtain a restraining order. The FJC is also equipped to help you find a safe place to stay and help you access food, clothing, medical care, and counseling.
Services at the FJC are completely free of charge, and are offered without question and without judgement.
Gun Violence Restraining Orders:
Red flag gun laws – known as Gun Violence Restraining Orders – allow police to remove guns from a home if there’s a threat of violence.
We continue to file emergency Gun Violence Restraining Orders during the pandemic to prevent gun violence and keep San Diegans safe at home.
If you know of someone who has threatened violence to themselves or others, and has access to firearms, contact San Diego Police at 619-531-2000. Trained officers will work with you, the City Attorney’s Office and the courts to remove the weapons.
The City Attorney’s Office is also enforcing the Safe Storage of Firearms Ordinance to keep children who are sheltering at home safe during the pandemic. The California Department of Justice’s Bureau of Firearms has an interactive website that shows which types of safety devices will work with your firearm.
