Are you seeing purple? In October, City buildings including El Mirage City Hall, El Mirage Police Department and El Mirage Fire Department are lit purple in observance of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Victim Advocates with the El Mirage Police Department assisted more than 700 victims of domestic violence last year.
Domestic violence affects people in all communities, regardless of age, gender, economic status, race, religion, nationality or educational background. If you or someone you know needs help, please contact our Victim Advocates at 623-500-3090 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional resources include 800-799-SAFE (7233) or 800-787-3224 (TTY), and www.ItCanStop.az.gov. Together we can make an impact for our community.
In addition, the El Mirage Police Department is featuring a newly designed awareness patch in observance of Domestic Violence Awareness Month and Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Officers will be wearing this special patch, as well as, prevention ribbons on their uniform throughout the month of October. Awareness ribbons are also available to the general public in October by stopping by the El Mirage Police Department Lobby, 12401 W. Cinnabar Avenue, during regular hours. Public health safety procedures are required.
