Domestic Violence Awareness Month Campaign
Local law enforcement agencies and area schools announced a collaborative effort to support Domestic Violence Awareness Month during October on Sept. 30, at the Hays County Government Center. The initiative was organized by the Hays County Sheriff’s Office.
The initiative involves Dripping Springs High School as well as the following entities: The Hays County Sheriff’s Office, San Marcos Police Department, Texas State University Police Department, Kyle Police Department, Buda Police Department, San Marcos High School, Lehman High School, and Jack C. High School.
As part of the initiative, area high school football players will wear the national symbol representing the campaign, a “Purple Ribbon”, on their helmets for the 2019 football season. Also, cheer teams and volleyball players will be wearing shoestrings with purple ribbons during the month of October. Volunteers will attend a designated football game to distribute information brochures targeting dating and family violence awareness. Domestic Violence awareness announcements will be made before and during the game.
