- Advocating on Behalf of Your Client’s Right to be Heard at Sentencing »
Collaborations between victim service providers, law enforcement, and other professionals working with crime victims are vital in taking a holistic approach to assisting victims. Hear from a former Lieutenant with significant experience in law enforcement about what you need to know to facilitate these collaborations. We will discuss the importance of knowing your audience, understanding how the department operates, who to reach out to, and how to effectively share your message.
