POLICE in West Yorkshire deal with almost 100 incidents of domestic violence in the county each day.
And today police revealed they are targeting habitual offenders.
Special `arrest days' are to take place in the coming weeks, when people suspected of domestic violence will be detained.
It is part of a highly-publicised, month-long campaign to get across the police's tough stance on domestic violence.
This may also include women attacking men or gay people attacking their partners.
Chief Superintendent Max McLean, head of West Yorkshire Police's Crime Division, said: "Domestic violence is a crime and we want the perpetrators to know they will be arrested.
"This month of action is another way of reminding people who've committed this type of crime that we know who they are and that we're never far away.
"This is a crime which wrecks the lives of thousands of adults and children in the UK each year.
"It is a major cause of family distress and social exclusion and is something this force are determined to tackle effectively.
"Incidents of domestic violence are rarely a one-off event.
"One violent incident tends to lead to another and such incidents often increase in frequency and severity over time. Every effort must be made to break this chain of events."
Last year, West Yorkshire Police responded to more than 35,000 domestic violence incidents.
Chief Supt McLean added: "We arrest people every day for domestic violence and work with other agencies to help the victims of this terrible crime.
"Bringing offenders to justice and protecting domestic violence victims is vital.
"We want victims to be confident that if they do report incidents to police we will take action, regardless of sexual orientation or gender.
"They should know that we will pursue the perpetrators. We no longer need the victim's statement to make an arrest.
"If there are reasonable grounds we will arrest the perpetrator immediately."
