La Crosse Police Land Domestic Abuse Grant

October is domestic abuse awareness month and La Crosse Police Chief Shawn Kudron is pleased to announce that the La Crosse Police Department’s DART (Domestic Abuse Reduction Team) project was awarded a continuation grant in the amount of $450,000 to be used over a 36-month period to improve criminal justice responses to victims of domestic abuse. The La Crosse Police Department received this federal grant to continue its important work with the victims of domestic abuse and violence against women. The Improving Criminal Justice Responses Program encourages state, local, and tribal governments, and courts to treat domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking as serious violations of criminal law requiring the coordinated involvement of the entire criminal justice system.

In partnership with the New Horizons Shelter and Outreach Centers, Inc. – a non-profit, non-governmental agency; the La Crosse Police Department; the La Crosse County Circuit Court Judges; the La Crosse County District Attorney’s Office; La Crosse County Family Court Services; La Crosse County Justice Support Services; and the Hmoob Cultural and Community Agency agree to work collaboratively to provide support, assistance, protection and justice for victims of domestic abuse and violence against women.

For more information about the program or to schedule interviews please contact the La Crosse Police Department Community Services Bureau.Domestic-Violence-Awareness
