A.I will keep my protection order _____________________________ (location). (Always keep it on or near your person. If you change purses, that’s the first thing that should go in.)
B.I will give my protection order to police departments in the community where I work, in those communities where I usually visit family or friends, and in the community where I live.
C.There should be a county registry of protection orders that all police departments can call to confirm a protection order. I can check to make sure that my order is in the registry. The telephone number for the county registry of protection orders is _________________________________________________________.
