Choices for YWCA: Becoming a safer place isn't easy
We sympathize. Domestic situations are often difficult and emotionally charged. It is commendable of the YWCA to take on an important role like this. But it needs to be better prepared.
But it does so only with a uniformed police officer at the center during all such visitations. Every visitor gets patted down and must submit to a metal detector check.
"We try to have the children feel safe, and that this is a homelike environment. It's hard to do that if you have a police officer standing there."
