Attorney General to Host Meetings on Victim Services

  • Photo
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Attorney General Tom Miller wants to hear from Iowans on a proposed plan to revamp victim services.

The Crime Victim Assistance Division is seeking public comment on a plan to divide the crime victim service areas into six regions. Within each, the state would fund regional shelter programs, domestic violence programs and sexual assault programs.

Miller says state and federal funding has dropped over the past three years. He says Iowa has to develop new ways to deliver better and more cost-effective services. If not, cuts will have to be made.

Thirteen meetings will be held during the next few weeks, beginning Monday in Oelwein and Waterloo.

Others are in Sioux City, Storm Lake, Atlantic, Creston, Burlington, Clinton, Mason City, Ames, Ottumwa, Des Moines and Coralville.
