Area briefing

Various Southern Nevada agencies released two videos Aug. 5 dealing with domestic violence awareness and prevention. The videos, titled “Stop the Violence — Don’t be Silent,” were produced following a collaborative effort among the agencies.

The goal is to encourage the reporting of domestic violence and to raise awareness of the availability of help for victims of the crime. The videos are designed as public service announcements and will be shown at area public venues.

Agencies involved with the production of the videos include the Southern Nevada Regional Housing Authority, Safe Nest, S.A.F.E. House, MedicWest Ambulance and the Metropolitan, Henderson, North Las Vegas, Boulder City and Mesquite police departments.
