Domestic Violence awareness video released; “Speak Up! Your Life Matters”

The Alexander County Sheriff’s Office, in partnership with the Alexander County Domestic Violence Advisory Council, has released a new Domestic Violence awareness video.  The video, entitled “Speak Up!  Your Life Matters!”  features various members of the Domestic Violence Advisory Council speaking about the issue of Domestic Violence in Alexander County.  The focus of the video is intended to demonstrate how Domestic Violence is a multi-faceted problem that involves many individuals and agencies.  Too often it seems that victims of Domestic Violence are afraid to seek help because of the fear that things will get worse or no one out there will understand or help.  The video campaign encourages victims, abusers, and bystanders to all speak up if they see, experience, or play a part in domestic violence with a common message that together we can break the cycle.
