Next Friday, Oct. 14, Wilton police officers are partnering with the Riverbrook Regional YMCA on Danbury Road to raise money for the Domestic Violence Crisis Center in Norwalk. Participants may join in a Zumba class or indoor cycling.
Domestic violence matters in Wilton because it is one category of crime that even a wealthy suburban town is not immune to. There are few arrests for street crimes like robbery here, but Wilton is no stranger to domestic violence. Nary a week goes by that the police blotter does not contain an incident of verbal or physical abuse.
