Kearney, NE (AP) - The University of Nebraska at Kearney is hosting this year's Nebraska Victim Assistance Academy.
The training program for crime victim advocates, law enforcement and others will take place July 21-25. Faculty from across the state will offer instruction focused on different crimes, such as stalking and domestic violence, and specific victim groups, such as children and immigrants.
Faculty members include representatives from the U.S. Attorney's Office, the Nebraska State Patrol and Legal Aid of Nebraska.
Organizers say they expect high demand for the academy, and they plan to cap enrollment at 50. Applications are being accepted. For more information, contact project coordinator Lauren Pilnick at LaurenPilnick@Creighton.edu or 402-490-7667.
