Victim advocates riding with deputies Victim advocates from New Hope Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Services are now riding along with Grant County Sheriffs Deputies in a partnership designed to help victims and enhance prevention efforts. Using a best practices model published by the U.S. Department of Justice, the first key feature of this program is advocates and deputies get to meet face-to-face and get exposure to each other's work experiences. Many times, a deputy will handle the domestic violence or sexual assault incident in the field but may not directly work with a crime advocate after the case has moved forward. This gives each professional the time to exchange information on how best to handle such cases. The second key feature of the partnership is advocates ride along with patrol deputies and respond on scene to incidents involving domestic violence or sexual assault. Once the deputy approves the advocate to go onto the property, the advocate will work with the victim, provide crisis counseling and offer information packets, which let victims know what options they have and how they can make safety plans. The advocates also arrange shelter admittance and transportation; children of victims also receive information. "This program helps us in law enforcement provide better services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault," Sheriff Tom Jones said. "Many victims may not immediately seek help, or know how to seek help, for the violence they are experiencing. Having a New Hope advocate on scene can provide the victim with immediate assistance and resources and then the advocate can guide the victim through the system and get any long-term assistance they may need." Initially, advocates will ride with deputies once a week and more frequently as workloads permit. Locally, the Moses Lake Police Department and Othello Police Department also participate in similar programs. For more information, contact the Sheriffs Office at (509) 754-2011 extension 468, or New Hope Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Services, (509) 764-8402.
