WEST VALLEY CITY — Advocates for domestic violence victims hosted a public march and presentation Tuesday.

The march began at Valley Fair Mall and crossed 2700 West to West Valley City Hall. A program followed, featuring talks by Mayor Mike Winder, city attorney Ryan Robinson and new West Valley Police Chief Lee Russo.

The public was also invited to view a display of more than 40 life-size red silhouettes of metal, representing each person killed in domestic violence in West Valley City since the city was incorporated in 1980.

The silhouettes will remain on display through Oct. 17. The events celebrate Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
