The Pottawatomie & Lincoln County Coordinated Community Response Team recently purchased ten new car seats to be placed within selected law enforcement agencies throughout the 23rd District. Car seats will also be available at the One Safe Place Family Justice Center for use by law enforcement. The money used to make these car seats available were from the community awareness event the group puts on called “Heels on for Her”. It’s an obstacle course where men from the community wear heels and compete against each other and citizens donate to see each contender race.
The Heels on for Her event has raised approximately $12,000 dollars over the last several years. The funds are used for community outreach campaigns for awareness for topics such as stalkings, teen dating violence, elder abuse, child abuse, sexual assault, and domestic violence.
The funds also helped purchase awards for advocates, prosecutors, and our first responders for their tireless hours assisting victims of these crime types.
A notable contribution from the group was it’s donations to the One Safe Place Family Justice Center where surveillance equipment for a soft interview room, furniture, and televisions for monitoring interviews were purchased for the center
