Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is abuse or threats of abuse when the person being abused and the abuser are or have been in an intimate relationship, which may include married or domestic partners, are dating or used to date, live or lived together, or have a child together. It is also when the abused person and the abusive person are closely related by blood or by marriage.

Run Hide Defend

Run, Hide, Defend training better prepares students, faculty and staff for an active shooter. Since an active shooter situation is often over within 10 to 15 minutes and before law enforcement arrives on scene, students, faculty and staff must be prepared both mentally and physically to deal with an active shooter situation. 

For more information, please email our Run Hide Defend training program.

Gang Prevention

Parents play an important role in keeping young people from joining gangs. There are many things parents can do to help their children stay away from gangs, including monitoring their activities, fostering close relationships with them, and by using positive and consistent discipline. However, parents often lack accurate information about gangs. The linked guide from the National Gang Center is designed to provide parents with answers to common questions about gangs, enabling them to better recognize and prevent gang involvement.

Parent Project

The Parent Project’s mission is to develop parent training classes and programs for those parents raising difficult or out-of-control children. The Morgan Hill Police Department is committed to providing access to highly effective programs that are affordable for every parent.
