Mary Kay Think Pink Event October 18, 2014
Harmony House congratulates the Springfield Police Department for their receipt of a $10 million COPS grant. The grant will allow the department to add an additional ten police officers. Harmony House further applauds the department for making a commitment that two of those officers will be devoted full-time to the investigation of domestic violence cases. The addition of two domestic violence investigators will lead to increased prosecution and prison time for abusers, which ultimately means our women and children will be safer. Thank you Springfield Police Department for all you do to fight domestic violence!
