Local organization donates care items for babies to TPD

Crisis can happen to anyone, at anytime. When people come to the police department for assistance, they dont usually bring with them all of the personal care items they may need- this is especially true when babies come in with the families.
A local group found out about the TPDs need to provide for the little ones who come into the station while their family seeks help.
The WITW Oz Outlawz Chapter” (Women in the Wind-Oz Chapter) donated several packages of diapers, wipes, bottles and pacifiers to the TPD to help out-
a much needed donation that will be put to good use- Thank you much!

Week without Violence Campaign

The Topeka Police Department is joining with the YWCA for this weeks ” Week without Violence”- the YWCA says on their blog (http://www.ywcablog.com/2017/10/10/week-without-violence-join-us/#sthash.Y1howzow.dpbs)

“The numbers are staggering. We all already know this. One in four women will become a victim of domestic violence in her lifetime. Every two minutes someone is sexually assaulted. One in three women experience gender-based violence. It is long past time that we change this — and you can help create a culture where gender-based violence is no longer a reality. This Domestic Violence Awareness Month, join YWCA from October 16 to 20 for Week Without Violence and make a difference.”

Make a difference- join with the TPD in the activities throughout the week.
