Lockhart, TX – The Caldwell County Family Violence Task Force is a coalition of community organizations and individuals dedicated to educating the public about family violence. Our membership consists of victim services, law enforcement, prosecutors, juvenile and adult probation, legal services, the medical community, youth services and concerned citizens.
For the past 6 years, the task force has nominated community members for awards in the following 3 categories: Professional of the Year; Law Enforcement of the Year; and Volunteer of the Year.
This year we are asking people in the community to help nominate individuals in these categories whom you feel have gone above and beyond his/her normal duties in situations or cases involving family violence.
You may email or fax your nominations to Michelle Ducote, at HCWC. Please submit your nominations by August 19, 2008. The award recipients will be honored at our 7th Annual Caldwell County Family Violence Task Force Conference on October 17, 2008.
For more information on the conference, please contact Michelle Ducote at the Hays-Caldwell Women’s Center at 512-396-3404.
