Victim Assistance Training Manual

For the National Sheriffs' Association, ILJ created a comprehensive Victim Assistance Program Guide and Training Manual. The manual is designed to help law enforcement practitioners involve community crime prevention groups, such as Neighborhood Watch, in assisting crime victims. The publication explains basic victim needs and expectations, presents crisis intervention techniques, explains how to assess community needs and resources, and includes a step-by-step training session that law enforcement officers can use with community crime prevention groups.
