"A critical element of the Domestic Violence Law is the provision of protection orders, intended to offer survivors immediate and longer-term protection from perpetrators of domestic violence, without requiring them to pursue criminal charges. The law includes two types of orders: temporary protection orders, for immediate, short-term (up to 15 days) protection from an abuser; and court protection orders, for longer-term (up to 6 months) and potentially more stringent protection. In issuing a protection order, police and courts are also obligated to inform the survivor of her right to pursue prosecution of her abuser. Police are responsible for monitoring and enforcing the abuser’s adherence to an order’s conditions" (18).more
