New domestic violence outreach effort in MoCo!
Court Watch recently contributed to the County’s campaign to place ads on MoCo County buses and in bus shelters reaching out to anyone suffering from domestic violence. The ads ask “Are you afraid of your partner?” Ads are in both English and Spanish and share emergency crisis phone numbers.
County Executive Leggett as well as the Chief of Police Manger, Sheriff Popkin and Assistant State’s Attorney Feinstein all spoke at the press conference.
Unfortunately, it is very hard to measure how many victims of domestic violence there may be in our communities who are unaware that help is available. Confidential help is available from the police at 911 or the Family Justice Center and Abused Persons Program, regardless of your gender, sexual orientation, or immigration status.
