Today, a special event was held at the Ector County Courthouse to highlight this issue.
Those involved stressed the importance of helping crime survivors find their justice. They also highlighted inclusion for all.
Numerous local leaders were on hand including Odessa Police Chief Michael Gerke.
“The best thing that I can just say is educate yourself, educate yourself, educate yourself. Education is power. There are just so many people that don’t know their rights and we want to stop that.” – Chief Michael Gerke, Odessa Police Department
