YPD Hosts White Ribbon Day 2017 By Jonathan Mayo
For the fifth year in a row Yarmouth Police Department hosted White Ribbon Day at Cape Cod Irish Village. This event, largely made possible by Independence House, asks that men and boys take this pledge. “From this day forward, I promise to be a part of the solution in ending violence against women.” Support for this event came from Independence House, Cape and Islands District Attorney's Office, Yarmouth Police department and countless other individuals. Police departments from all across The Cape were represented at the event.
