Personal Protection Order (ppo) in a Family Context

A PPO is a mechanism which restrains a person (ie. the aggressor) from using family violence against a family member. When a PPO is granted and in force, the aggressor may be liable for imprisonment if he / she ignores and breaches the PPO by continuing to use family violence against that family member.
