How do I get an Order of Protection?

The police department does not issue orders of protection. The orders are only issued through the courts and signed off on by a judge, which empowers the police to enforce the remedies of the order. A person just needs to go to the court house and ask where they can speak with a domestic violence advocate about getting an order of protection application.
