Listening session to be held Sunday for Victims of Crime in Alaska

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Alaska Criminal Justice Commission is holding a 'Victims of Crime in Alaska listening session.'
The event will be held tomorrow at the Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center from 5 to 7 p.m. Brenda Stanfill with the Alaska Criminal Justice Commission says the purpose of the listening session is to improve services and responses for victims
of crime in Alaska.

"We hope that there will be a good turn out, that will give people 3 to 5 minutes to really talk about what it is, we hope they will be very candidate with us in the things that worked and didn't work, because unless we really hear those things, we really don't know what to fix on a policy level," said Stanfill.

She says that if you would like to have your voice heard but do not want to talk in front of the group, there are many other ways. You can write your thoughts down on a piece of paper and give it to them, you can speak anonymously or speak to one of the organizers afterwards.
