Wallowa County will soon have new weapons to fight domestic violence and child abuse, thanks to a $430,000 two-year grant just awarded to the Wallowa County Sheriff's Office by the U.S. Department of Justice.

The application for funding, written by former Safe Harbors director Liza Nichols, was approved by the Office of Justice Programs under the Rural Domestic Violence and Child Victimization Enforcement Discretionary Grants Program, which is designed for rural communities.
