Last Wednesday night police from Pacific Fair Police Beat attended Chicks at the Flicks at Event Cinemas, Pacific Fair.
The reason for the attendance was to support victims of domestic and family violence as part of DFV Prevention Month with a pop-up police station.
Hundreds of women were in attendance as police promoted DV awareness and education as well as raising funds for the Domestic Violence Prevention Centre with a raffle from prizes donated by shops within the centre.
Officer in Charge of the Pacific Fair Police Beat Senior Constable Sarah McGuinness said that police were determined to expose the horrible truth of domestic and family violence through education and awareness.
“The community has really come together to shed light on domestic and family violence and to let the community know that DV will not be tolerated,” Senior Constable McGuinness said.
“The women that attended tonight have been amazing and we have raised almost $600 to support victims of domestic and family violence.”
On the night police gave a short talk to promote awareness of domestic and family violence whilst at the pop-up police station. There was information on community groups and programs that could provide assistance, as well as having officers available to talk to if they have any questions.
