DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Victims of domestic violence now have a new tool to help keep them safe.

The Montgomery County Domestic Relations Court unveiled a new Civil Protection Order Card Tuesday.

It provides police with quick information about a person who is ordered to stay away from someone.

“It’s a convenient method for domestic violence victims to provide evidence that they have a protection order,” said Administrative Judge Denise Cross. “This card is another tool in an effort to protect victims of domestic violence.”

The card resembles a credit card or driver’s license. It includes all pertinent information about the person or people ordered to stay away.

It is free of charge to anyone who was granted a civil protection order. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
