“As we continue to uphold the law and protect our communities, let us also be vigilant in recognizing the signs of psychological abuse. Let us foster an environment where victims feel safe to come forward, seek help, and break free from the chains of emotional distress. Together, let’s stand against all forms of abuse and create a society where love, respect, and understanding prevail,” PD Laude said. (Mark James Lisondra)
