Victim Witness Assistance

Victim Witness Assistance

Victims of crime may experience feelings of confusion, frustration, fear and anger. The United States Attorneys Office for the Eastern District of Kentucky and the Victim Witness Unit is dedicated to making sure that victims of federal crimes and their family members are treated with compassion, fairness and respect.

 
Project Safe Childhood

Project Safe Childhood

Guided by the leadership of the Attorney General, Project Safe Childhood (PSC) aims to combat the proliferation of technology-facilitated sexual exploitation crimes against children. The threat of sexual predators soliciting children for physical sexual contact is well-known and serious; the danger of the production, distribution, and possession of child pornography is equally dramatic and disturbing. The response to these growing problems must be coordinated, comprehensive, and robust. It must aim to investigate and prosecute vigorously, and protect and assist victimized children. At the same time, it must recognize the need for a broad, community-based effort to protect our children and to guarantee to future generations the opportunities of the American dream.

 
Prescription Drug Abuse

Hale, in conjunction with the University of Kentucky (UK), hosted Kentucky’s first Prescription Drug Abuse Summit on Wednesday, February 1, 2012. The one-day event was attended by more than 300 health care providers, educators, law enforcement officers, public officials and high school students.
