Agenda Item Brief:

The Victim Advocates for Sparks Police work with a number of businesses and non-profits throughout the community to assure victims of crime, to include domestic violence, receive the support needed after involvement in a difficult event.


The Sparks Police Victim Services Fund utilizes donation monies to assist victims of crime.  This fund allows Sparks Police Victim Advocates to provide services to victims of crime which would not normally be available without these funds.  Funds are utilized for a variety of necessities such as: purchasing basic living supplies for families, hotel rooms for a short term to avoid violent situations and clothing for families unable to collect such items due to leaving home in a short time period to escape violence.


The listed donation will assure the Victim Advocates at Sparks Police can continue to provide the highest level of service to the citizens and visitors of our community who become victims of a variety of crimes.
