Crockett County Leaders Target Domestic Violence
Law enforcement leaders in Crockett County say domestic violence cases are on the rise, specifically within the Hispanic community. So far this year, more than 100 cases have been reported, and that’s an increase over years’ past, leaders add. Monday morning, mayors and police leaders from every Crockett County city gathered at the courthouse, to announce their efforts to focus on the issue. Leaders with W.R.A.P. (the Women’s Resource and Rape Assistance Program) say a volunteer task force has been formed, to help educate the Hispanic community. Officers say language barriers often prevent some victims from sharing their information.
