Sheriff and East County Family Justice Center host event, invite all who want to help victims escape violence


September 12, 2010 (Spring Valley) -- Domestic violence, child abuse, teenage dating violence, and elder abuse have continued to climb alarmingly high, San Diego’s Sheriff reports. The Sheriff and East County Family Justice Center invite the public to a free program on October 5 from 6 -8 p.m. at the San Miguel Fire Station, 2850 Via Orange Way in Spring Valley.


Speakers will inform citizens on the necessity of understanding the pattern of a violent relationship, recognizing signs of elder and child abuse, what resources are out there for the victims and how to help manage a safe plan to get out of the abuse.


The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, in partnership with East County Family Justice Center, as well as other agencies, is presenting information on these extremely sensitive topics for victims, friends, families, or anyone else that would like to learn how to make a difference.


Everyone is invited. An RSVP is appreciated. Call Angie Hamilton 619-337-2039
