State of Kentucky Archives: on Crime


Jack Conway: Reduce crime via focus on cybercrime against kids

Conway focused on his office's work to reduce crime in Kentucky, mostly through the Cyber Crimes unit aimed at abolishing Internet crimes against children, and his war against prescription drug abuse. "This is the first time that the number of deaths from overdoses is headed downwards," he said, adding that he has spoken to more than 40,000 students about the importance of staying drug free.

Alison Grimes: One in six US women will be victims of domestic violence

PROTECTING VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: As Secretary of State, Alison championed the first-ever address confidentiality program for victims of domestic violence to ensure their safety and security are not compromised when they vote. In the Senate, Alison will continue to be a voice for victims of domestic violence. According to the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services, "a woman is assaulted every 15 seconds" and one in six women in the U.S. will be victims of domestic violence over the course of her lifetime--troubling statistics that must be addressed.

Despite political attempts to disguise his real record, Mitch McConnell has repeatedly opposed the Violence Against Women Act and even blocked an effort to vote on the bill to protect women.
