October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month:
Stillwater Police Department gives out cell phones to domestic violence victims
The Stillwater Police Department has participated in their annual Domestic Violence Awareness conference, which was held at the new Wellspring facility on Route 9 in the Town of Malta. The conference was in timing with the month of October being National Domestic Violence Awareness Month with the goal of shinning a light on this increasing problem that affects many families. Stillwater Police have collected over 6600 cell phones since 2003, which are turned over to advocates to distribute to victims of abuse. These phones become lifelines for victims.
Those in attendance included Saratoga County District Attorney Karen Heggen, Saratoga County Sheriff Michael Zurlo, Stillwater Police Chief Paul Pecor, Stillwater Police Commissioner John Nett, Wellspring Director Maggie Fronk, Mechanicville Area Community Center Executive Director Megan Quillinan.
Several representatives from local businesses that have been collecting donated cell phones were also in attendance. The businesses included DeCrescente Distributing Company, The Express Newspaper, New Country Toyota of Clifton Park, Ballston Spa National Bank, and the Stillwater Area Community Center.
