HURLEY - Since 2005, numerous agencies across Iron County have come together to respond to cases of domestic and sexual violence. The Iron County Coordinated Community Response Team is a partnership of six agencies or departments in Iron County. According to Malinda Peterson, team chair, the group started after three individuals in the county died as a result of domestic violence. "These deaths signified the realities of the issues on how our community responded to domestic violence cases, which prompted the attention to form a coordinated community response to domestic and sexual violence," Peterson said.

South Bend gang leaders invited to meet with police, community organizations
SOUTH BEND - For the second time, South Bend police, prosecutors and community activists sat face-to-face with the people they say could either drive or end the violence in the city. At the Charles Martin Center on Thursday, police put all their cards on the table. They told some of the most influential gang and group members they have a choice. Either end the violence now, or risk your entire gang being put in the spotlight. Cameras weren't allowed inside. But the media was allowed to attend a rehearsal to go in-depth about how the call-in works.
