Chief William Spain
Chief Spain has been a member of the Board of Directors of Womanspace for 21 years. Chief Spain’s partnership with Womanspace was instrumental in creating the first Domestic Violence Victim Response Team in Mercer County. His partnership has been invaluable to the organization’s success across Mercer County becoming the first county in NJ to have Domestic Violence Response Teams in every municipal police department as well as the State Police and all three four-year colleges in the county. The measure of success is the more than 700 survivors a year that come through the doors of the response team rooms across the Mercer County.
Since retiring from the East Windsor Police Department his support of Womanspace and the families they serve has not wavered. He is well known for his effective leadership and his work in the field has served to improve service to all survivors. He is an active advocate and an amazing emissary for the work of domestic violence advocates everywhere. Chief Spain is a champion of Womanspace and for those impacted by domestic and sexual violence. Womanspace is grateful for his unwavering support and his willingness to step up whenever his assistance is needed. We identify Chief William Spain as a true Man of Strength.
