Scott County K9 Search & Rescue Deserve's the State of Tennessee's Support

The Scott County K9 search and rescue unit assists families of loved ones; and are often called in across the county to search on missing person's cases.  Families like Jacque Waller’s the mother of three was last seen on June 1, 2011.  They along with the CUE Center for Missing Person's headquartered in Wilmington, NC and law enforcement have organized massive searches combing Cape Girardeau, MO  for Jacque Waller since she was reported missing.  
Jacque Waller an employee at the time with Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield had moved with her triplets out of harms way, or so she wanted to believe.  The day papers were signed at the divorce attorney's office Clay Waller told Jacque she needed to pick up their son from his temporary residence.  
That day Jacque was filled with a false sense of security that she was going to be safe and finally away from her violent, and abusive husband.  One June 1, 2011 with her car parked in the driveway, Jacque rang the doorbell. Clay Waller made good on years of threats, "You'll find yourself being carried out in a body bag if you ever leave me, and your children will be motherless."  Jacque similar to the thousands of others in violent, abusive relationships thought because she'd been away from Clay he could no longer harm her, especially in giving him a good financial settlement.  But like all repeat abusive and dangerous offenders, Waller was never going to let her be free.
Prevention is the key for victims of domestic violence, abuse and stalking.  The Scott County K9, a 501C (3) charitable organization would like to bring awareness to the community in hopes of preventing mothers, sisters and victims of domestic violence from being reported missing.  
They are sponsoring events to bring awareness education and a prescription for change in the area of Intimate Partner Violence.  Law enforcement, hospital staff, social workers and those who respond to victims reaching out for service's are encouraged to attend the events listed below.
I hope to see an outpouring from the community in attendance at the events while I am in town.  I'm volunteering my time to train, teach and speak.  It's a  win-win for everyone.  The Scott County K-9 Unit receives all monies collected for tickets and books sold, the community has the opportunity to learn what they can do to prevent their own loved one or co-worker from being a victim and learning the signs and hopefully prevent someone else from being killed or reported missing.  
Help me help your Community to remove the Silence from Behind Closed Doors.
