North Bend residents are invited to discuss public safety and domestic violence at the October community safety meeting. Deputy Amy Jarboe of the King County Sheriff's Office will be the presenter at the monthly meeting, set for 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 17.
Jarboe has investigated hundreds of domestic violence cases in her 15 years with the county's domestic violence investigation unit. She is considered a regional expert, and will share her experiences in dealing with victims, suspects, and family members, and talk about the effects, both short- and long-term, of domestic violence. She will also offer information about how to recognize signs of domestic violence and provide participants with tools and options on how to deal with such situations.
All are welcome to this information meeting. People are also encouraged to suggest topics for future public safety meetings.
