Delaware County Victim Assistance Center and Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Representatives of the Delaware County Victim Assistance Center visited our Police Department yesterday and provided our officers with an overview of their services and valuable resources offered by the organization. The Victim Assistance Center provides education programs to schools and community groups, as well as training for allied professionals, such as police, emergency responders, and medical personnel, both to increase community awareness of the impact of crime on victims, and to develop prevention strategies.
