The Caring Place recognizes Sheriff Reynolds

for support and training

Porter County Sheriff David Reynolds was recognized by the Caring Place board last Tuesday night (Feb 13) for his support of educational and training programs and officer training to help victims of domestic and sexual assault.  Sheriff Reynolds received the "Making a Difference Award" during the annual board meeting and volunteer recognition dinner held at the Court Restaurant.  Reynolds was recognized for "making a difference" in the lives of victims of domestic violence, seeing that county police officers understand the needs of victims.  He has worked closely with the mayors' commission on domestic violence in Portage and Valparaiso said Charlotte Conjelko before the dinner. She is the community awareness director for the Caring Place Inc, a shelter for battered women and children which serves Porter, Lake and Starke counties.  County officers are trained to thoroughly investigate reports of domestic violence and sexual assault and show compassion for the victim, Conjelko said.  She said Reynolds has worked with community groups toward educating officers and the public about the seriousness of domestic violence.  Reynolds called it a real honor to receive the award. He said the Caring Place plays an important role in educating police and the public to domestic violence.
