In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the Canyon Lake City Council recognized the Domestic Violence and Abuse Protection Agency (DVAP) during Wednesday’s council meeting.

The council presented a Certificate of Recognition to DVAP founder, Jeffrey Lee, who was accompanied by President Melissa Montoya and Board Member Samantha Bell.

A California-registered 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation, DVAP provides professional physical protection services at no cost to victims of violence, abuse, and stalking. Services also include child and elderly abuse protection, child exchange overwatch, process serving, security advisory and consulting, and court accompaniment.

Based in Riverside County, DVAP teams up with other domestic violence advocacy groups to provide an alternative resource for safety for victims of violated protection or restraining orders. By partnering with Branch Management Protection, DVAP can provide professional physical security at no cost to victims.

Protection orders are enforced by fully uniformed professionals by alerting local law enforcement of violators while providing physical security to prevent further injury and death.
