Putnam County Sheriff marks Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.  Putnam County Sheriff Robert Langley hopes to bring greater public awareness to prevention strategies and effective responses for victims.  In addition to assistance provided by the court and legal systems victim service programs, , Langley says domestic violence victims in Putnam County have access to potentially life-saving information through the website Sheriff-Assist.org.  On that site, people can track the custody status of their offenders and register to be notified by phone or email in the event of a release to the community or a transfer to a New York State correctional facility or county jail.  He says this access empowers domestic violence victims to gain a greater degree of control in their lives and to make informed decisions about their safety.
