The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office has set up a display to bring awareness to domestic violence in the county.
Outside of the county Law Enforcement Center, the office has set up red and blue wood cut-outs.
The 30 silhouettes represent men, women, and children who were involved in domestic violence cases this past year. There have been 16 deaths involving domestic violence in the county since 1996.
“We also have to let the victims know that there are programs that can help you get out of this situation,” said Sheriff Steve Mueller, “We just have to keep putting that message out there and hope that more and more people will come forward saying the need help and that they are in this situation.”
The silhouettes were made by local students and will remain through the end of the month.
