GREENFIELD — When former football star O.J. Simpson was accused of killing his ex-wife in 1994, the case brought domestic violence to the forefront, and law enforcement agencies across the country raced to implement prevention initiatives.

At the Hancock County Probation Department, Wayne Addison was proud to say his office already had such a program in place – and had, in fact, for years.

It’s thanks to Gayle Conley, said Addison, chief probation officer. Conley, 52, of Indianapolis, has been working for Addison for 25 years and approached him in the late 1980s about the need for a treatment program for violent offenders.
