2017 Law Enforcement Breakfast – Photo Gallery

Today, at YWCA Spokane’s 4th annual Law Enforcement Appreciation Breakfast we had the honor of recognizing the outstanding efforts, compassion, and positive impact officers and detectives within our community have had on the lives of survivors of domestic violence.
We know that a victim’s initial interaction with law enforcement is a key factor in whether she will move forward with getting help. Thank you to those who are committed to keeping victims safe and holding perpetrators accountable.

Letters From Survivors
