Violence Prevention Program Held Tomorrow

To recognize National Crime Victims' Rights Week, the Northwest Hospital Domestic Violence Program and the Baltimore Police Department will be sponsoring their Second Annual Community Against Violence event.

Northwest is proud to partner with law enforcement in addressing issues like domestic violence, identity theft, elder abuse, drug abuse, and youth gun violence. National Crime Victims' Rights Week serves to empower residents, and to let victims know of their rights. This week is also a chance to memorialize those people who became victims of crime.

The program begins tomorrow evening at 7 p.m., Liberty Resource Center, 3505 Resource Drive, Randallstown. The doors open at 6:30 p.m..

There will be three speakers:

  • Scott D. Shellenberger, the Baltimore County State's Attorney, speak about witness intimidation and what the state is doing to combat it.

There will be representatives from a variety of local agencies, food and beverages, door prizes and some great raffles! All are welcome.
