Corpus Christi Police Chief Floyd Simpson spent Thursday afternoon speaking to a packed room at the First Baptist Church on Ocean Drive. At the forefront of the discussion was domestic violence.
"We try to engage and break the cycle, because we found it's passed down through generations because families believe that's the way it ought to be," Simpson said. "So we're here to stand up against that, and say it's not normal."
Simpson was the guest speaker at a Community Response Coalition luncheon. The Coalition is made up of dozens of local organizations like the Women's Shelter and Child Protective Services.
The group's primary goal was to meet victims' needs, and educate the public on preventing domestic violence and sexual abuse. Simpson told the group that domestic violence is a life or death situation, and if someone is in trouble, they need to get help right away before it's too late.
