Treating Victims of DUI/Impaired Driving Crashes as Crime Victims

July 13 @ 2pm Eastern

Too often prosecutors, victim advocates, and law enforcement continue to differentiate between vehicular crimes and other types of crime. This webinar, sponsored by the Office for Victims of Crime, aims to change any existing mindsets that DUI crashes are “accidents” rather than “criminal acts.” The webinar will include the showing of NSA’s roll call video, DUI Crashes: Real Crimes, Real Victims. Finally, Sheriff John Whetsel, in presenting this webinar, wants to ensure that victims of these crashes are responded to by law enforcement in a crime victim-centered way, with all the referrals, support, and resources due victims of a violent crime.

Presenter: Sheriff (ret.) John Whetsel, Oklahoma County, Oklahoma
