So me and two other girls (one other officer and one social worker) have been working for 2 + years to try to get a Domestic Violence Unit in our town (we respond to over 1200 domestic related calls for service a year). This unit is made to serve our residents who are victims of domestic violence more effectively and efficently. The unit also includes more officer education, offender accounability, and public education about domestic violence. Well for years we had been shot down!! Great news.... we just had a meeting last night with one of our council members who told us it is slated for the 2009 budget!!!! We are so frickin' excited. He asked we come up with an estimated budget to give the council but it looks like it is a go!! After so much frustration our passion is finally becoming a reality. We finally get to help victims how they should be helped!! Ok I am done now, thank you all for listening but I am too excited to keep it in!
