Domestic Violence Awareness Month
On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men. 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have been victims of some form of physical violence by an intimate partner within their lifetime.
By creating a Smart911 Safety Profile, people can provide information about their risk of being a domestic violence victim along with a home address. Should the victim ever need to call 9-1-1, the dispatcher will be able to send help without the victim ever saying a word.
