VICTIM IMPACT PANEL

Since 1993, VIP volunteers, consisting of victims, family members or offenders who have caused driving accidents while under the influence, speak of the consequences of impaired driving to people who have been charged with driving while under the influence offenses.  The purpose of this program is to change participant’s thinking about driving while under the influence of alcohol or other drugs and make our community roads safer.

Adolescent Victim Impact Panel (AVIP)

Since 1999, AVIP has provided an opportunity for volunteers to present their stories to youth who have committed and alcohol or drug-related offense.  The panel brings substance abuse and safety to the forefront, encouraging parents and teens to discuss these difficult issues.  AVIP will also present panels to schools, driver education classes and other organizations if requested.
