On average, approximately one third of the violent crimes committed annually in Clay County are domestic violence related. Simply stated, more than one third of the perpetrators were the spouse, parent, child, sibling, relative or roommate of the person he/she victimized.
The Clay County Sheriff’s Office fully endorses and supports the efforts of the Quigley House, Clay County’s comprehensive domestic violence and sexual assault center. Our agency conducts a major fundraising campaign each year called “Beards & Blossoms” during which our male members are allowed to grow a beard in exchange for a donation. Our female and male members can contribute by purchasing flower arrangements from Park Avenue Florist. Proceeds go to Quigley House and the worthwhile services it provides to Clay County women and children.
The men and women of the sheriff’s office are committed to reducing crime in Clay County and to protecting our citizens. Curbing and preventing domestic violence are top priorities.
