The high number of domestic-violence-related police calls is a concern in Minnesota as the governor’s stay-at-home order remains in effect through April 10th. Becky Smith with Violence Free Minnesota has this reminder:

“Domestic violence programs are open, there is a safe place for you to go please reach out to an advocate or someone you trust.”

Smith says a 24/7 domestic abuse crisis hotline is open at 866-223-1111 or you can text 612-399-9995.
