2018 Report to Congress—ICJR Chapter
Read about program accomplishments from July 2015 through June 2017 and hear from grantees in their own words.
The ICJR Program Funding has allowed the Lake County Attorney’s Office to prosecute domestic violence, stalking, and sexual assault cases in a focused, systematic, equitable, and thorough manner which never existed before. Having an attorney and staff member solely devoted to these cases has lessened the burden of the other over-worked Deputy County Attorneys and their staff. It has allowed us to develop a comprehensive approach to victim outreach and a positive working relationship with the non-governmental victim’s rights advocates. This ensures that victims who wish to play an active role in bringing their abuser to justice have a voice throughout the process.
