As agencies and communities throughout the nation observed Denim Day 2010 today, Community Violence Solutions in San Pablo, CA was pleased to have received support from their local police department.  Below is a message from the Richmond Police Department to Community Violence Solutions:

The Richmond Police Department’s Investigative Services Bureau wants you to know we are in total support of “Denim Day” in protest of the 1999 Italian court ruling. As a show of support, we all broke out our jeans and dressed against Department policy.

We want to thank you all for the hard work and support you provide to our Victim’s.
