Knox Co. Sheriff/DCS Look to Community to Help Curb Domestic Violence

The Knox County Sheriff's Office and the Indiana Department of Child Services are encouraging community members to step up and report suspected domestic violence.

Knox County is one of the areas in Indiana battling a high number of domestic violence incidents and the impact they're having on Hoosier children and their families.

Knox County Sheriff Mike Morris says his deputies respond to about 30 domestic disturbances a month.

He says most of the time they find children present.

Morris says domestic violence is an ongoing problem that many times is fueled by the use of methamphetamine.

He says when meth and domestic violence mix, it can mean injuries or even death.

Urgent domestic violence episodes should be reported to 9-1-1.

The sheriff's department may be reached at 812.882.7660.
