In 2003, 10,969 emergency orders of protection were sought (short term, 2 or 3 weeks). Only 1,994, or 18%, became plenary orders of protection (long term, up to 2 years). Yet, more than 7,500 extensions were granted, meaning that many victims returned to court one or more times, but still didn’t get a plenary order of protection. In 2004 only 15% of emergency orders of protection became plenary orders of protection. • The number of orders of protection obtained in criminal court has decreased since 1995, leaving some women whose cases do not proceed to completion without court-ordered protections. • Approximately 34% of orders of protection in LEADS are not served or able to be served and may account for some of the orders that cannot be made into plenary status. Violations of Orders of Protection When a domestic offender disregards some portions of a court’s order of protection, he (she) may be charged with violation of order of protection, a Class A misdemeanor. • Reports to police of violations of orders of protection are increasing,* and although the total number of orders of protection issued in 2003 was 37,183, police received only 3,043 violation reports (8%). Of these only 41% were arrested. • The number of prosecutions for violations of orders of protection remained steady between 2000 and 2003, but between 50-55% of cases were not dismissed and proceeded to disposition. Very few violations of orders of protection were prosecuted as felonies. Domestic Battery Incident Reports, Arrests and Prosecutions • There were 42,648 domestic batteries reported to police in Chicago in 2003 and an additional 11,090 in suburban Cook County, for a total of 53,738. Missing data for domestic battery incidents in Chicago for previous years does not enable us to calculate trends. • Only 2% of those domestic battery incidents reported to police in Chicago in 2003 involved the use of a weapon. • There were 10,803 arrests for domestic batteries in Chicago in 2003. This means approximately 25% of domestic battery incidents reported to police resulted in arrest.* • The number of domestic batteries reported to the police and the number of domestic battery arrests increased between 2000-2003 in suburban Cook County.* 3• 1,600 females were arrested for domestic battery in Chicago in 2003,
