Community Walk Against Domestic Violence set for Saturday, Oct. 1

2nd Annual Community Walk Against Domestic Violence - October 1, 2022

The Killeen Police Department hosts second annual event

KILLEEN, Texas (Sept. 8, 2022) – The Killeen Police Department will host its second annual Community Walk Against Domestic Violence on Saturday, Oct. 1, 2022.

The event will be at Lions Club Park from 11a.m. - 2p.m. and is free and open to the public. Mayor Debbie Nash-King will present a proclamation and help bring awareness and support to victims and survivors of domestic violence.

The event will consist of a one-mile education walk, along with food and music. Attendees are encouraged to wear purple or a fun costume to show their support.

Along with the Killeen Police Department, the mayor and Killeen City Council members, the Killeen Fire Department, Families in Crisis Domestic Violence Shelter, Fort Hood’s Family Advocacy Unit, Children’s Advocacy Center, Aware Central Texas and more community partners will join the event.

October is observed as Domestic Violence Awareness Month annually as a call to action to recognize the issue, understand the impacts and break the cycle. It is estimated that nearly ten million men and women are physically abused by a partner each year and in Texas, 35% of men and women experience some form of domestic violence in their lifetime.

The Killeen Police Department and the City of Killeen believe that together, we can end domestic violence. For questions or event information, please contact KPD’s Kimberly Isett at (254) 501-7698.
