October 2016 as Domestic Violence Awareness Month


Chief Mina will begin the presentation with some talking points about Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Citizens have a list of things that they would want their police departments to be the best at and I bet at the top of that list is our response to Domestic Violence.

We are proud to have been a model agency nationwide in our victim focused response, especially with our Domestic Violence Response Team.  This innovative response has also been recognized by the Orange County Commission on Domestic Violence and Child Abuse Commission as a best practice to be adopted by all local law enforcement agencies.

The Orlando Police Department also participates in the Domestic Violence Task Force, the Fatality Review Board and the Commission on Domestic Violence and Child Abuse.

The Orlando Police Department works tirelessly to keep Orlando a safe city by reducing crime and maintaining livable neighborhoods.  None of this would be possible without the invaluable service of the victim services partners that we have here with us today.

Mayor Dyer will read the proclamation.
