Social Workers Help California County Reduce Domestic Violence Deaths
Cheers to the KGO-TV in San Francisco for this article that partly credits social workers for a decline in domestic violence deaths in California’s populous Santa Clara County.
The county reported five domestic violence deaths in 2010, down from 11 the previous year. There were no child deaths in 2010, compared to three in 2009.
“The district attorney gives credit to countless hours of hard work by police, social workers, and the medical community with reducing the number of domestic violence deaths last year,” the article said.
