I recently filed a police report and my abuser got arrested.

Hi I recently filed a police report and my abuser got arrested. He was later released and is awaiting sentencing. However today afternoon I got a house call from the police. I did not answer as they never told me they were coming and I had no idea who they were ringing my doorbell. I called the DV unit and they told me sometimes they send follow up unexpected house calls to check on the victim. This seems pretty retraumatizing and unprofessional. Is it possible they are lying because they are investigating something else? Do you know if the DV unit in NYC make unexpected house calls to check up on DV victims? I was not physically abused but emotionally stalked and harassed by my abuser so this seems extreme. I am worried he tried to make a counter claim on me in retaliation since I got a protective order against him.
