The Family Services Unit is responsible for investigating crimes against families, including domestic violence follow-up, sexual assaults, and child abuse.  This unit is responsible for managing all restraining orders that are in effect in Somerville.  A part-time civilian victim advocate is also assigned to this unit.  She works with victims of family violence to obtain needed services.  The FSU also is responsible for registration of convicted sex offenders who live or work in Somerville.   Detectives from the FSU work closely with the District Attorney’s office to prepare family violence cases for prosecution.  This FSU also investigates civil rights violations.
