Tucson City Court is the recipient of a $497,000 grant from the Department of Justice, Office of Violence Against Women. Over the next three years, the grant will continue to support the specialized Domestic Violence Court, which has provided access to advocates and services for more than 1,400 victims of domestic violence.
The court will partner with the Tucson City Prosecutor’s Office, the Tucson City Public Defender’s Office, Pima County Adult Probation, Emerge! Center Against Domestic Abuse, and Community Outreach for the Deaf, in an effort to address the issue of domestic violence in our community.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
