A Thank You!

Thank you to the Banks Family for stopping by Headquarters today with lunch for our Officers. It was a pleasure meeting with the family and hearing of their positive experience with our Officers during a time of need.

You may remember the Banks girls from the 2015 PHMS People’s Choice Awards photo with SRO Rowello.

Great family and we look forward to seeing you again!

Domestic Violence Awareness Month

As stated in the September 13, 2014 Presidential Proclamation recognizing October 2014 as Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Domestic violence affects every American. It harms our communities, weakens the foundation of our Nation, and hurts those we love most. It is an affront to our basic decency and humanity, and it must end. During National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we acknowledge the progress made in reducing these shameful crimes, embrace the basic human right to be free from violence and abuse, and recognize that more work remains until every individual is able to live free from fear.
