The Corrections and Parole Board Office of Victim Services, along with the Conasauga Circuit District Attorney’s Victim Assistance Office, will hold a “Victims Visitors’ Day” for victims of crime and their families on Wednesday at 9 a.m. at the Whitfield County Courthouse.

The event brings together victim service providers, justice professionals and volunteers who dedicate their lives to helping victims of crime and their families.

Crime victims and their family members will receive information concerning the current status of their offender, and can register to receive future notification of that status.

The Office of Victim Services offers assistance to victims of crimes and their families whose offenders are in the custody of the Georgia Department of Corrections or who are currently under the supervision of the State Board of Pardons and Paroles. The office encourages crime victims to become informed and involved in the case of their offender.

“Having been raised and worked as a law enforcement officer in this judicial circuit, and now making my home in the surrounding area, I felt it was important to bring Victim Visitors’ Day to the victims of my judicial circuit,” said vice chair-elect L. Gale Buckner, a Murray County native. “This event will allow crime victims input into the parole process and access to information concerning their offender, thus allowing victims to make informed decisions about their personal safety.”

If you plan to attend, please contact the Conasauga Circuit District Attorney’s Victim Assistance Office by Friday at (706) 272-2273 for an appointment time.
