Teen crime, dating violence will be focus of Farmington session
The workshop, which is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. in the library at Farmington High School, is designed for parents, coaches, guidance counselors and “anyone who interacts with teenagers in a positive way,” according to Karen McCall, education and volunteer coordinator for A Safe Place.
The workshop is free, but registration is required through Police Chief Kevin Willey, who can be reached at the Farmington Police Department at 755-2731, ext. 107.
“We can accommodate almost any number of parents that choose to come,” Willey said.
As about a quarter of teens will experience violence in a dating relationship, McCall said it’s important for parents and adults to recognize the signs of abuse, especially as girls and women ages 14 to 24 have the highest risk of injury.
The workshop will provide participants the tools they need to talk to teens about dating violence and identify the indicators of both potential victims and perpetrators.
For more than 35 years, A Safe Place, based in Portsmouth, has provided free and confidential domestic abuse support services and emergency shelter for women, children and men from across the region. Last year A Safe Place answered more than 9,055 crisis calls, served 1,613 women with 1,623 dependent children and 134 men, according to a release.
