Longueuil unveils alarm system for domestic violence victims


Victims of domestic abuse in Longueuil may start feeling a bit safer, as the city rolled out a new alarm system geared specifically towards them on Monday.

Carmen, the first person to receive the new alarm, asked not to have her last name used for her own safety. She said that once her ex-partner gets out of prison, she’s convinced he will try to get in contact with her and the device is helping her feel safer in her own home with her six-year-old child.
