Practicing the wrist grab technique as Master Daniel Howard watched were Elsie Asher, left, of Tremont, and Linda Parker, of Baxter.


Master Daniel Howard shows Hartsell a hit to the nose technique that can be used when a woman is in a domestic violence situation allowing her time to escape. Howard said this effort on his part was especially brought to light when he began working many years ago as a deputy jailer at the detention center. He said he “gets to see the results of domestic violence” and what happens as these cases progress through the court system.
