Ivey announces $6.3 million grant for victims assistance

Posted: Tuesday, December 11, 2018 9:32 am

Gov. Kay Ivey has announced the awarding of a $6.3 million state grant that will allow Alabama district attorneys to hire 88 certified victim service officers to assist victims of crime.

“The criminal justice system can seem intimidating to people who have been victims of crime,” said Ivey. “I am pleased to support this program, which will provide knowledgeable professionals to help crime victims understand the court process and ensure that victims are aware of other community resources that may further assist them.”
