SMPD Participates – “Day of Remembrance” for Domestic Violence Victims

Day of Remembrance 2

In conjunction with Domestic Violence Awareness Month, police, county staff, and victim advocacy groups attended the Domestic Violence Council on Tuesday, October 8th, at the “Day of Remembrance” ceremony to remember those who have suffered from domestic violence.
The event provided an opportunity for the community to view and interact with the Silhouette Project presented by CORA (Community Overcoming Relationship Abuse) and domestic violence service providers staffing resource tables outside the Board Chambers.

A ceremony was held inside Board Chambers at County Center where leaders from the faith community offered messages of hope and condolence, survivors of violence shared personal testimony, and community leaders and service providers read the names of those who have died, accompanied by the ringing of a ceremonial bell.
