Monroe Police are sharing information from The Center for Family Justice. Staff is working remotely to serve clients in crisis who are living in abusive situations. Domestic violence programs throughout the state are concerned victims may lack the ability to safely reach out for help as they are forced to stay in close quarters with an abuser. The Domestic Violence hotline is 203-384-9559, though Monroe Police cautioned that any victim in immediate life-threatening crisis should call 911. They are encouraging victims living in abusive situations to establish safe words or signals with friends or family that can be shared if they are in danger, so that those people can call for help.
