Community organizations work together to combat sexual assaults
The Janesville Police Department investigates an average of more than two sexual assault cases each week.
Chief David Moore says few crimes are more horrendous or personal. Moore joined the Rock County Sheriff, District Attorney, and representatives from the YWCA and Mercy Health System's Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner program at Wedge Park in Janesville Tuesday morning to call attention to Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The group said it's important their organizations work together to offer support and justice to victims.
300 pinwheels adorned the park, representing the number of calls to the crisis line in Rock County last year.
