Wyoming has joined 30 other states in launching a brand new program to help victims of violent crimes.
The Wyoming Board of Parole has started its own Victim Offender Dialogue Program.
The program allows victims to talk to their incarcerated offenders in a safe and secure environment about the crime they committed against them or their loved one.
Those who have participated in the program in other states report gains in their own healing, recovery and rehabilitation.
"There are questions like, 'why did you kill my loved one or what were their last words or why did you do this to me.' There's just lots of things that are left unsaid or unanswered and it's for closure and sometimes even reconciliation," said Randi Losalu, Victim Services Coordinator for the Wyoming Board of Parole.
Victims who would like more information on this program can call Randi at 777-5390 or send her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
