The Anaheim Street Community Police Center invites Long Beach residents to learn about domestic violence at its monthly meeting on Tuesday, April 20, from 5:00 to 6:30 pm at the Mark Twain Neighborhood Library Community Room, 1401 E. Anaheim St.
Domestic violence is not just a “private problem;” nearly one in four families, including children, partners, spouses, and seniors, are affected by domestic violence in some way, according to the California Attorney General’s Office.
Detective Fred Bloh, Ret. Long Beach Police Department, will explain the procedures for reporting domestic violence, filing a crime report, and how to obtain and enforce restraining orders.
Interval House representatives Elvia Hurtado and Lorena Ponce will share resources available to domestic violence victims and their families, including emergency shelter and legal services. Interval House provides crisis intervention and assistance to domestic violence victims, as well as individuals at risk for abuse. Interval House also promotes violence prevention education through its many bilingual programs and services.
This free workshop will be presented in English with Spanish and Khmer translation. Free parking is available in the library parking lot.
