Domestic Violence Awareness

DV homicides in Gaston County-websiteGastonia Police have a campaign underway for Domestic Violence Awareness. The GPD’s public lobby is decorated with purple lights and informative posters, most based on GPD statistics and some based on county and state statistics. Some posters based on county and state statistics are also displayed at businesses in Downtown Gastonia.

Did you know that Domestic Violence assaults have vastly outpaced DWIs in Gastonia in recent years?

Did you know that Domestic Violence assaults increased 45% in 2015 compared to 2014 in Gastonia?

The GPD takes Domestic Violence very seriously and is always working with the D.A.’s office on these cases and any way to improve them.
