The Canyon County Sheriff’s Office will hold a press conference on Monday, October 5, to officially recognize October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month in Canyon County. Sheriff Kieran Donahue will be joined by Prosecutor Bryan Taylor, County Commissioners, and other community and law enforcement leaders to discuss the impact of domestic violence on our communities and show support for the organizations that provide advocacy and assistance to victims.

“Domestic violence is a serious issue that continues to be a burden on our communities and our criminal justice system,” said Sheriff Kieran Donahue. “People need to understand how rampant of an issue this is in our communities. Domestic violence occurs every day in the Treasure Valley, but it’s rarely ever talked about unless someone is arrested and charged with a crime. That needs to change. We need to come together as a society and confront Domestic Violence head-on so we can end the vicious cycle once and for all.”

In addition to the press conference and proclamation reading, the Sheriff’s Office will showcase its two new Domestic Violence Awareness patrol vehicles for the first time before they officially hit the road.
