Intimate Partner Violence--term used in law enforcement to describe violence between persons involved in a sexual or other intimate relationship. Does not necessarily connote marriage or any other form of long term relationship, as might be the case with "domestic violence" and related terms.
"In one instance, a woman that a man had met and brought home the night before called the police while he was in the shower the next morning. The police showed up and arrested him for IPV based solely on her word, like the good little blue-suited thugs that they are, and while he was cooling his heels in jail, she cleaned out his apartment and disappeared. It just never ends, does it?"
