The Texas Prosecutor, May-June 2017, Volume 47, Number 3

Victim Impact Statement revision

This summer I have been invited to serve on the TDCJ-Victim Services Division’s VIS Revision Committee. The committee will meet several times to review the format of the VIS form, VIS Quarterly Activity Report, It’s Your Voice brochure, and VIS Recommended Processing Procedure. If you have suggestions that could aid our committee in making these documents user-friendly for victims as well as criminal justice professionals, please share your suggestions with me by email at Jalayne.Robinson @tdcaa.com.

In-office visits
Thanks again to each of the offices that invited me to come out for victim services assistance. Traveling across Texas and visiting each of your offices is so exciting to me! It is such an honor to be able to help victim assistance coordinators (VACs) and prosecutors recognize services and resources available for crime victims and to share ideas on how VACs may assist the prosecutors with whom they work.
    Please reach out to me at [email protected] and I will develop either group or individualized victim services training for your office.
