Victim Justice Symposium: September 29-30, 2014

This year, the Crime Victim Assistance Division’s Victim Justice Symposium is entitled “Victim Justice: Is It Just Us?,” to exemplify its multi-disciplinary and statewide goal to enhance community and justice services for crime victims from investigation to advocacy, prosecution and treatment. The Victim Justice Conference, held at the Prairie Meadows Conference Center, brings in nationally recognized speakers and local speakers to conduct workshops and best practice panels that brainstorm new solutions for victim issues.

The conference will provide information to law enforcement personnel, prosecutors, judicial personnel, victim advocates, medical providers, mental health professionals, correctional staff and concerned citizens on cutting edge issues, best practices, and the newest legislation involving crime victim rights in order to promote more collaborative efforts across the different employment fields so as to improve services offered to crime victims throughout Iowa.
