County Executive Mangano stated, “My administration is dedicated to combating the public health issue of family violence and will continue raising public awareness to help prevent such terrible acts. This fourth conference is another major step forward in our efforts and I thank Dr. Kimberly R. Cline, President of Long Island University, for the University’s involvement and support in promoting awareness of this very serious issue.”

In 2010, County Executive Mangano appointed a distinguished panel of individuals to serve on a Family Violence Task Force - chaired by Social Services Commissioner Dr. John Imhof.
