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.

Once upon a time, not that long ago, 2 girls were seen leaning their bikes up against a wall and going in to eat at Tortilla Jacks, sitting by the windows.
When asked, they said they didn’t have bike locks and had to sit by the window to make sure their bikes were safe- that’s a problem!
But Tortilla Jacks owner Naomi Kelly had an answer. Partnering with the Topeka Police Department bicycle unit- over 200 bicycle locks were purchased to help.
Our Bicycle Officers will provide bicycle locks to children they encounter through their day who could benefit from a lock.
Thank you to Tortilla Jacks Naomi Kelly!!
This is the essence of community and police working together to tackle a problem.~ and they all lived happily ever after~
