Training focuses on the BASICS

Domestic violence shelter manager Lorie Delaney knows how important it is for victim advocates to be properly trained. A domestic violence survivor, she now devotes her life to helping women recover at the Project Woman shelter in Springfield.

Delaney attended the ADVANCE Academy’s Basic Advocacy Skills in Crime Victim Services (BASICS) training presented by the Ohio Attorney General’s Office in September. Since then, she has recommended to her executive director that all of her colleagues participate in the five-day program.


Timeline chronicles case of elusive fugitive Bobby Thompson

Bobby Thompson loved the game. Conning unsuspecting donors who thought their $5, $10, and $20 donations were benefiting American heroes. Rubbing shoulders with famous people. Watching money roll in from 41 states where his U.S. Navy Veterans Association “charity” was registered.


TDIM puts focus on victim advocacy

More than 1,000 people attended the Ohio Attorney General’s recent Two Days in May Conference on Victim Assistance.

Ohio sheriffs issued 60,881 regular concealed carry permits in 2010, including 47,337 new licenses and 13,544 renewal licenses.
