There's calls on the Government to provide more funding for specialist domestic violence services in York and Selby.
The latest stats show there's been a 26% rise in reported incidents here, when comparing 2008 to 2009.
Between April and December last year, 2272 cases were investigated. That's in comparison to 18-hundred in 2008.
Now this doesn't mean North Yorkshire's a more violent place, just that more people are coming forward.
