NYPD Educates Beauty Pros to Identify Domestic Violence

NYPD train cosmetologists to recognize visual and verbal signs of domestic abuse.

New York-based furniture and equipment manufacturer PIBBS Industries joined forces with the New York Police Department at IBS New York to educate beauty professionals on how to spot domestic abuse victims. The booth aimed to train cosmetologists to recognize signs of domestic abuse, whether visual or verbal, and how to take the appropriate measures
when they suspect a client is being abused.

“We believe cosmetologists have a unique opportunity to identify telltale signs during interactions with their clients,” says Sgt. Frank Maiello of the Chief of Department’s Office, Domestic Violence Unit.

The NYPD is supporting a state bill that would require licensed cosmetologists to get training every two years on how to recognize signs of domestic violence. This training would apply to each owner and employee at the more than 10,000 salons and spas in New York City.
