Oswego Police Department News

Over the weekend we made a post about our first arrest at the new police headquarters as we were glad to announce the new jail was up and working. We included that the person was arrested for domestic battery and advised those in abusive relationships to seek help as they deserved better than to be in such a situation. In retrospect we should have included information about how to obtain such help in our service area. Mutual Ground is one of the largest domestic violence and sexual assault service agencies in Illinois. It is a safe place for people to seek help. They are located in Aurora and provide comprehensive victim services free of charge, including as counseling, emergency shelter, legal advocacy and family services. Mutual Ground has two 24-hr hotlines: • 630-897-0080 - Domestic Violence Hotline • 630-897-8383 - Sexual Assault Hotline All calls are confidential and their trained professionals offer informed, non-judgmental support. Spanish speaking advocates are also available. Remember domestic violence can be expressed in a variety of ways and may look and feel differently at different points. Domestic violence is not always physical, but it is always about power and control. If you ever feel that you are in immediate danger, call 911.
