A few years ago there was an officer that killed another officer right near my parents' house - the two officers were a couple. It was found that there were several attempts for restraining orders against the male, but the female had a lot of difficulty getting the other officers in the jurisdiction to take her seriously because they trusted him/he was an officer.
There was a Lifetime movie based on a true story about something like this.

I think it used to be(?) really hard to get the police (in general) to take restraining orders seriously in matters of domestic violence and it seems that it was even more difficult when the offender was a fellow cop.

That's tragic. Yet I don't know if it can be chalked up to the one party being a cop. There was a business acquaintance of mine recently stabbed to death on Wall Street by her estranged husband. She was carrying the damn restraining order against him in her pocket. They found it at the hospital. I think it's more of an issue of restraining orders being meaningless pieces of paper. Just my opinion.
Absolutely, but she couldn't even get the restraining order at all. I'm sure it would have happened even if she had it, since he kidnapped her, killed her, then killed himself - he was obviously unstable.
Wow, how tragic. It's even more tragic that even with a restraining order, the outcome may not have been different.

There was a similar story in this weekend's paper. Linda Erlichman was murdered by her ex-boyfriend even with a restraining order. He was a former New York City police officer. He was actually in the process of being prosecuted for stalking Erlichman and they think that may have provoked him. He shot her to death and then killed himself.

Here's the story.

Guess I'm glad to say I've never encountered an a-hole cop.
