Park City police finally have a victim advocate of their own to help victims of crimes deal with the aftermath.
After losing a Summit County sheriff's advocate to budget cuts a few years ago, the department recently got a grant to hire their own victim advocate coordinator, who provides victims with crisis intervention and service referrals in the wake of a crime. Tawnya Cazier took the job, coming from her position with the Rape Recovery Center in Salt Lake City.
"Officers speak with a victim, take statements and give the comfort and info they can," Cazier said in a statement. "I'm very lucky because I'm able to work with the officers and take over to help victims with other things they will need going forward."
