On Monday the Sequoyah County commissioners signed a proclamation declaring January as Stalking Awareness and Human Trafficking Awareness Month in Sequoyah County.
Sequoyah County Investigator and member of the Sequoyah County Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault Response Team (CCR/SART) Cindy Smith stated that the team is proud of the commitment made by county officials in recognizing the need to bring these awareness and prevention months to the forefront.
"Their continued support helps enable the victims/survivors of these crimes to know they are not alone and that there is help. Reporting is never easy, but the early reporting of these crimes may save a life," Smith said.
