Domestic Violence in the Commonwealth on Eastern Standard (audio available)

In a recent 12 month period, at least 25 Kentucky women died at the hands of male intimate partners. For decades, law enforcement, governments and social service agencies have worked to increase awareness and prevention of such violence.  That effort continues during this year’s observance of Domestic Violence Month.
