The following topics were addressed during the workshop: Police-conducted interviews and domestic violence – detectives' capabilities and experiences; "Angry Man" and children at home, violence: witnesses, victims, or police informants?; The Risk Prevention Unit in cases of domestic violence; Domestic violence phenomenon from the crisis center perspective; Familiarization with the Police Patrol Unit and equipment; Police activities aimed at preventing domestic violence in Norway - a historical perspective; Planning and investigation of cases in the context of violence in close environments.

At the end of the workshop, participants, working in groups, analyzed two cases of violence in close environments. The police, along with prosecutors, discussed the practices of the Norwegian police and addressed challenges faced by Lithuania on this issue.

All workshop participants expressed gratitude for the opportunity to learn directly from Norwegian colleagues and gain inspiration for implementing new ideas and practices.
