National Domestic Violence Awareness Month
National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, or DVAM, is an annual designation observed in October. Domestic violence is widespread and affects people from all walks of life; one in four women and one in seven men have suffered severe violence from an intimate partner. The effects of domestic violence can last a lifetime, and each person heals differently.
DVAM evolved from the “Day of Unity” held in October 1981 and conceived by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. The “Day of Unity” soon evolved into a week, and in October of 1987, the first National Domestic Violence Awareness Month was observed. In 1989 Congress passed Public Law 101-112, officially designating October of that year as National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
DVAM is an opportunity to deepen our understanding of these issues, share resources, and most importantly, support survivors. Your West Covina Police Department recognizes this and would like to bring public awareness to this very serious and important issue. ... See MoreSee Less

On Saturday, October 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the West Covina Police Department and the U. S. Drug Enforcement Administration will give the public its 16th opportunity in eight years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your pills for disposal to the CVS Store located at 3670 S. Nogales Street, West Covina. (The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches.) The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Survey on Drug Use and Health shows year after year that the majority of misused and abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including someone else’s medication being stolen from the home medicine cabinet.
