2015 Link Conference

Loving Humans, Loving Pets, Loving Communities

Amelia Olson

Pets are part of my family and like true family members my relationship with my smaller mammal loved ones can be complex. Statistics have shown that when an animal is being abused in a household, a human family member is also experiencing abuse. By acknowledging and studying the link between animal and human violence, we can create new ways of maintaining a safe and secure household for all of our family members. This also allows for multi-disciplinary public safety and public-service agencies to find effective ways to collaborate and cross-report abuse in order to reduce community violence. The National Hispanic Cultural Center (1701 Fourth Street SW) hosts and the Bernalillo County Sherriff’s Office and the Animal Care Services Department will head the 2015 Link Conference, an event highlighting what other jurisdictions are doing to improve community relationships with demonstrated success. Anyone from social workers and law enforcement officers to domestic violence workers and attorneys will be attending this crucial event. All others are welcome to attend this conference happening on Monday, Sept. 14, from 8am to 5pm. Registration is $80. For more information visit nationalhispaniccenter.org. (Amelia Olson)

This year’s Link conference features national and local speakers including Lt. Andrea Taylor and Misha Goodman to highlight what other jurisdictions are doing with demonstrated success.

Bernalillo County’s Division of Public Safety is again among the sponsors for this year’s Link conference. For those who are unfamiliar, The Link refers to the link between abuse of animals and human violence. When an animal is being abused in the home, statistics show that a human family member is also being abused. As a result, multi-disciplinary public safety and public -serving agencies are finding effective ways to collaborate and cross-report in order to reduce community violence. This year’s Link conference will feature national and local speakers--to include our own Lt. Andrea Taylor, on behalf of BCSO, and Misha Goodman, Director of Animal Care Services Department--to highlight what other jurisdictions are doing with demonstrated success. Conference attendees will include social workers, law enforcement officers, judges, tribal social services, attorneys, animal care workers, administrators, domestic violence workers, and related professionals.
