Hundreds of Officials Continue Education at Crime Victim Conference

By  | 

First responders across the Brazos Valley never stop learning new tricks of the trade. Some of them from our region even continued their education today as part of the Every Victim, Time Conference.

Hundreds of law enforcement officials and medical personnel from across the state packed into the Brazos County Expo Center in Bryan for the eighth annual event. The two day conference offered low cost professional training on how to reach out to victims of crimes and how to help give them long term structure and care.

"Victims are people and you have to learn how to work with people every single day," said conference chairperson Melissa Carter. "There's always more you can learn. There's always more techniques and tricks of the trade that other people who have done that and who have been there for years can teach us."

Event organizers said this year was the largest turnout yet with more than 600 people registering.
