In a valley where victim resources are spread far and wide, the Metropolitan Police Department is creating a “one-stop shop” for those seeking help with domestic violence, sexual assault and human-trafficking cases. It’s called a family justice center, and it’ll be housed within the department’s central valley headquarters. The center is the first of its kind in Nevada, a state where the domestic violence climate is consistently one of the worst in the nation. And it’s been a long time coming — the center was researched, proposed and rejected over a period of 10 years before ultimately getting the green light.
