Opportunities to connect crime victims to specialized personnel and services are being missed. Join Office for Victims of Crime Fellow Amy Durall and Caroline Huffaker, Senior Program Manager at the National Policing Institute for this discussion on law enforcement-based victim services.

Agency readiness is a crucial component of successfully incorporating law enforcement-based victim services. Agency personnel must clearly understand their expected contributions and associated policies for their assigned responsibilities. Effectively preparing for and communicating these expectations can contribute to long-term sustainability.

Information from this webinar can help participants identify the following—

  • integral agency personnel and processes;
  • agency data and community resources; and
  • who, where, and how of planned agency services.
