State’s Attorney Alvarez Recognizes Domestic Violence Month

Posted by Admin On November - 2 - 2015

In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez presented awards to individuals who assist victims and survivors of domestic violence during a recent ceremony.

The Courage Award was presented to Carolyn Brown for her strength and determination after she survived a horrific attack at the hands of her longtime boyfriend. During the 2011 attack, which was witnessed by her daughter and grandchildren, Ms. Brown was shot in the head at point blank range at a beauty shop in Chicago. After a long recovery, she bravely testified at the criminal trial and continues to advocate for other victims of domestic violence.

Chicago Police Department Detective Pamela Childs received the Outstanding Law Enforcement Award for her long term service in the Special Victims Unit, where she focuses her efforts on assisting domestic violence victims with support, advocacy and compassion.

Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart was presented with the Outstanding Advocacy Award for his leadership and innovative approach which has led to nationally recognized reforms that have advanced the way law enforcement responds to victims of sexual assault and domestic violence.

The ceremony was held on Oct. 29 at the Zhou B Art Center in Chicago.
