Several agencies in Richland County are joining together to raise domestic violence awareness. The team includes law enforcement, schools, hospital, and crisis center.

The group was formed thanks to federal funds through the North Dakota Council of Abused Women's Services. The CCR response team, which stands for coordinated community response, will help develop strategies and procedures to enhance the safety of victims.

Becky Devries – Three Rivers Crisis Center: “It is not necessarily more help, it is stream lined, so everyone knows what agency is doing what, so law enforcement knows what the crisis centers position is, the schools know what law enforcement would do.”

Organizers will continue to look into any existing gaps in services, and will mend those gaps with this program.
