Violence Prevention Committee

Nancy Ralston, Criminal Justice Planning Specialist from the Attorney General's office advised us that there is a Domestic Violence Working Group reviewing policies and procedures of the criminal justice system on Oahu.. The group was mandated by House Concurrent Resolution 65 to prepare findings and recommendations that will be presented prior to the start of the next legislative session. Although we were not asked to participate in this group our comments were solicited. We forwarded a copy of our victim safety report to all committee members. The last meeting of this group will be Oct. 26 to review the report page by page. We will attend but we have been instructed that in the interest of time we will not be allowed to speak. From the beginning it was agreed that aside from members of the group the only others welcome to speak were those invited to give a presentation.
