SEXUAL TRAUMA SERVICES HONORS SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT
Wednesday, April 30, 2014

 
LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC - Sexual Trauma Services of the Midlands recently honored the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department for having the largest number of participants and raising the largest amount of money during the fifth annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes fund raiser at the South Carolina State House. It was the second consecutive year that the Sheriff’s Department received the honor.

Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts said 112 persons joined the Sheriff’s Department team for the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event, raising $5,150 that was donated to Sexual Trauma Services of the Midlands.

Sheriff’s Department employees participated in the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event in order to show support for victims of sexual assault and abuse, Metts said. Proceeds from the event will help victims recover from trauma that is caused by sexual assaults and abuse. The event also helped raise awareness about what citizens can do to limit sexual assaults and sexual abuse.

South Carolina State Constable Craig Bowers coordinated the participation of the Sheriff’s Department in the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event, Metts said. The participation of the Sheriff’s Department in the event reflects the agency’s mission of providing professional law enforcement services that enhance the quality of life for all people in Lexington County.
