A new $747,000 grant awarded to the Tucson Police Department will expand services and resources for Spanish-speaking victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.

The grant from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Violence Against Women will be used to hire two detectives specifically to serve Spanish-speaking victims, to fund additional training for local nurses and medical-service providers, and to help create better resources for Spanish-speakers in areas of domestic violence and sexual assault.
