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.
