WPS Expects Domestic Abuse To Rise During Holidays

Michelle Lovato is the 8th person to die in Lubbock this year because of domestic violence.

Women's Protective Services tells NewsChannel 11 they've seen a record number of cases this year and expect it to increase during the holidays. "There's a lot more drinking involved and a lot more drugs involved," said Hattie Heiner, WPS Coordinator.

Here are a few signs that your partner may be an abuser. He or she shows signs of excessive jealously, controlling behavior, verbal abuse, threatens violence, is cruel to animals and children or is hypersensitive.

If you or someone you know needs help, call WPS at (806) 747-6491. Calls are answered 24 hours a day.
