Police Chief Conrad is a proud member of the Board of Directors for The Center for Women and Families. Under his leadership as Chief of Police in 2012 LMPD implemented a lethality policy that included an 11 question assessment that LMPD officers use when responding to domestic violence situations.
LMPD added an 11th question into their assessment that references violence towards animals. LMPD is dedicated to saving lives and found with this assessment that 66% of people didn’t know about The Center for Women and Families and the services. Chief Conrad is a big supporter of The Center and is proud that LMPD can support the work and help people find the services they need!
The Center for Women and Families helps victims of intimate partner violence and sexual assault to become survivors through support services, community education and cooperative partnerships that foster hope, promote self-sufficiency and rebuilds lives.
