Court unveils domestic violence protection cards
BATAVIA, Ohio (June 30, 2015) -- The Clermont County Domestic Relations Court now offers offer a wallet-size Civil Protection Order card that provides law enforcement agencies with a practical way to verify and enforce protection orders. “The card contains the case number and relevant information from the protection order, but it is a more convenient format for domestic violence victims to carry with them. Law enforcement can use the information provided on the card to confirm the terms of a protection order,” said Judge Kathleen M. Rodenberg.
The card includes the name and identifying characteristics of the person ordered to stay away, the names of protected people, and dates of issuance and expiration. It is about the size of a credit card or driver’s license so it fits easily in a wallet or pocket. The court does not charge a fee for the Civil Protection Order or the card.
