A deplorable statistic: despite the comparative tranquility of our community, domestic violence incidents still comprise a substantial number of calls for service at the Warren County Sheriff’s Office. Further, the National Institute of Justice estimates that only 25% of assaults are actually reported. And as often noted, domestic violence crosses all social lines, and in this respect, is an injurious unifier – no individual is exempt.
Countering this disturbing trend is the Warren County Sheriff’s Office law enforcement and community service mission. Our staff is committed to reducing domestic violence occurrences, through protection, through education, and through accessing every community resource available. Sheriff Hightower requires our telecommunicators and our deputies to be thoroughly trained in domestic violence responses, and in empowering victim support.
We believe that protection, education and aid resources should reach every single citizen who is a victim, or is a potential victim of domestic abuse. Assuring that every victim receives the utmost assistance, support and recovery service is a primary function of your Warren County Sheriff’s Office.
