The Reno City Attorney’s office is taking new steps to curb domestic violence, under a plan recently approved by the Reno City Council. Reno Public Radio's Esther Ciammachilli has more.
When running for City Attorney last year, Karl Hall told KUNR this would be one of his top priorities:
"I'm going to devote additional resources to the criminal division, specifically the domestic violence issue, to protect our domestic violence victims."
Hall’s plan includes hiring a new full-time prosecutor. It also will allow prosecutors to begin working on a domestic violence case within hours of a suspect’s arrest.
