The Knox County Fourth Circuit Court Clerk's Office has entered into an alliance with The Center for Court Innovation. A primary initiative of The Center is to encourage community-based violence prevention projects, alternatives to incarceration, reentry initiatives and court-based programs that seek to promote positive individual and family change. This month The Center hosted an Integrated Domestic Violence Court Open House in New York. Deputy Court Clerks Stephanie Corn and Michelle Henry represented Knox County. Ms. Corn and Ms. Henry gained a better understanding on how to design a holistic response to domestic violence. They participated in discussions and workshops, on a variety of topics, facilitated by leading national faculty. The experience and the knowledge gained from attending the Open House will assist our Fourth Circuit Deputy Clerks to strengthen our current initiatives and guide the implementation of new services and resources for citizens of Knox County.
