NYSP Troop C in Sidney is offering us this timely reminder about the significance of the month of October.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness month. Troop Commander, Major Brian Shortall, and members of the troop as well as civilians show their support by wearing purple and pledging support to help “Shine the Light” on domestic violence. Troop C also held a raffle with all the donations going to local agencies that assist victims and children.
