DRPS officers from East Division, including Inspector Rolf Kleum, marched with the Clarington community at the 10th annual Take Back the Night event on September 17.
Aimed at raising awareness of violence against women, the march started at the Royal Canadian Legion in Bowmanville and marched through the downtown area. It was a family affair, with children enjoying face painting, activities and food, in hopes that the message of anti-violence is one that reaches all ages.
The event is organized by Bethesda House, a Bowmanville-based shelter for abused women and their children. For more information, visit www.bethesdahouse.ca.
