IPV & Police (RNC, Royal Newfoundland Constabulary) with Cst. James Cadigan

Concussion Talk Podcast

27-06-2023 • 18 mins

For the final episode of Brain Injury Awareness Month in Canada, Cassandra and Miriam of the NLBIA (Newfoundland and Labrador Brain Injury Association) talk to Cst. James Cadigan of the RNC (Royal Newfoundland Constabulary) about IPV (Intimate Partner Violence), one of the most pervasive causes of traumatic brain injuries (TBI). There are many complicated reasons why TBIs caused by IPV are so often undiagnosed and unreported. Dr. Eve Valera briefly talked about some of those potential reasons on Episode 151. On this episode Cassandra and Miriam bring this important issue to light once again and show how seriously the police take IPV and know the many challenges victims may face. In fact, the RNC has an IPV Unit that can be found here. Their contact information is displayed below.


For emergency situations please call 911, and for non-emergency assistance please call 709-729-8000. For general advice, contact IPV@rnc.gov.nl.ca or call 709-729-8093 or 709-729-8270 (Please Note: This number is not monitored 24/7)
