Abstract:     
The usefulness of 911 call records in domestic violence situations is under-appreciated. This Article documents an extraordinary increase in prosecutorial success in routine misdemeanor DV cases when 911 call records are available and used in some fashion. It also explains how other parties could effectively use 911 event chronologies and sound recordings to stop domestic violence and protect children from being exposed to it, including child protection agencies, victims themselves, and children's other family members.
