Harding University High School is bringing awareness to National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month. CMPD’s Domestic Violence Unit collaborated with the student leaders to bring awareness to teen dating violence.

At the basketball game, they passed out purple pom-poms to cheerleaders and players wore purple socks as part of an effort to support the fight against domestic violence.

Detective Major Kay says his unit’s goal is to stay below the national average and to minimize teen dating violence.

“In the Charlotte-Mecklenburg region, we fall under the average. The national statistic is 33% and that’s with child abuse, domestic violence and assaults on teens. We fall a little bit under that in Charlotte and we don’t’ want to make it to the national average,” Kay said.
