Nominations Open for Outstanding Victim Advocate of the Year
HELENA – Attorney General Mike McGrath on Tuesday announced that his office is now accepting nominations for the 2007 Attorney General’s Outstanding Crime Victim Advocate award.
Each April, in conjunction with Crime Victim’s Rights Week, the Attorney General’s Office honors one or more outstanding victim advocates from around the state. Recipients are recognized with a plaque presented by the Attorney General.
“Montana is fortunate to have a number of dedicated individuals who work incredibly hard to make sure victims traumatized by crime get the help and support they need,” McGrath said. “I encourage everyone who knows one of these unsung heroes to consider nominating that person for this year’s award.”
In the past, award recipients have included shelter volunteers and staff, nurses, law enforcement officers, and advocates working in local county attorneys’ offices and on Montana’s college campuses and reservations. In addition to individuals, this year teams also may be nominated.
