he Abbotsford Police Department’s Domestic Violence Unit has launched an important video on the topic of violence in relationships called “Reveal’ution”. The film was created and produced by FireCanvas Productions and features amazing actors from the W.J. Mouat Secondary School drama class.

With the full support of the Abbotsford School District, The Domestic Violence Unit of the APD will be using the film as discussion points for students in grades 10-12 in schools throughout Abbotsford as a way to increase awareness of relationship violence and to encourage youth to seek help if they witness or experience it. 

We have also uploaded the video to YouTube and have made limited DVD copies available to allow for parents and other interested citizens to view the film and to support this worthy initiative.  The Abbotsford Police Department and the APD Domestic Violence Unit are encouraging all citizens to join us in our effort to end relationship violence.
