Domestic Violence Protective Order Process To Improve In Monroe

A broken chair and scattered clothes lay on the floor.

Protective orders are becoming more instrumental in breaking the cycle of domestic violence now that order information and updates are more accessible to law enforcement through the Indiana Protection Order Registry.

Monroe County is working to improve its protective order process and help survivors move past the violence.  The county will be hosting a panel discussion on domestic violence this Thursday August 8th.  It will be held in the Council Chambers of Bloomington City Hall at 6 pm.

Panel members include Monroe County Clerk Linda Robbins; Middle Way House Executive Director Toby Strout; Monroe County Chief Deputy Prosecutor Bob Miller; Indiana State Police officer Kevin Getz; and Monroe Circuit Judge Francie Hill.

This week on Noon Edition, we will continue the conversation with the Monroe panel to see what steps the county is taking in an effort to decrease domestic violence.

If you need help filing for a protective order you can find an advocate in your area here.

You can join us for a live chat at WFIU.ORG/NoonEdition, follow us on Twitter at Noon Edition or call into the program at 812-855-0811.
