October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Statistics from the National Network to End Domestic Violence say that 1 in 4 women will be impacted by domestic violence in her lifetime.
Law Enforcement agencies from around the country recently teamed up local those with outstanding domestic violence warrants. The Racine County Sheriff’s Office arrested seven people.
The Journal Times reports:
Seven people were taken into custody locally as a result of the 14th annual Family Violence Apprehension Detail last week.
The detail is a national collaborative effort of more than 250 law enforcement agencies from throughout the country that works to identify and apprehend people with outstanding domestic-violence warrants, according to a Racine County Sheriff’s Office press release.
This was the third year the Domestic Violence Task Force and Racine County law enforcement agencies have participated in the effort.
