TOPEKA – (April 14, 2016) – The Western Kansas Child Advocacy Center was recognized for its service to crime victims during this week’s Crime Victim’s Rights Conference in Topeka.
The organization was presented the Outstanding Victim Service Organization Award by Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt during an awards ceremony this morning.
“The Western Kansas Child Advocacy Center staff is there whenever I ask to do whatever I ask, many times with little or no notice. They are always there doing just what the victim needs,” Scott County Attorney Rebecca Faurot said.
The Kansas Crime Victims Rights Conference was hosted by Attorney General Schmidt and Governor Sam Brownback. The conference featured a number of speakers and trainers focused on raising awareness of emerging crimes and offering new approaches to respond to enduring crimes, such as child abuse, domestic violence and human trafficking.
