Did you purchase a program yet? I am bringing to the board at our Sept meeting information on a program that I would like to purchase that would get us electronic and filling out forms on the computer AND would make the quarterly reporting much easier.
It is the Victim Service Client Management software, it sounds really good but I don’t know of any offices that are using it, I know there are some, I just don’t know who they are and if they’d recommend it or not.
How did you make out with your ID cards? I’m only asking as I’ve just
done ours here at Manning. I made out some for the Board members as
well. I made ours with a back that has the current Detachment Commander
signature on it too validating the ID.
also, I should’ve said that we always take another advocate or Golda and I both go. Always in two’s.November 17, 2015 at 1:44 PM in reply to: Municipally and FCSS funded Victim Service Programs #2835

I will have to check this out more often, I see this was started near the new year.
We have a VSU vehicle, we lease a Ford Escape. We have provided transportation to court and to the Women’s Shelter in Peace River (an hour away). This isn’t something we offer outright, we usually ask them what arrangements they’ve made to get to court and if they can get there on their own, we let them.
Sometimes it’s not offered and depending on who they are – not all victims are nice people and some have sketchy police records of their own, and they will have to get there on their own.
If we are transporting we let a member or Mary the admin person know when and where we are going and who is going with us and then we report in that we have arrived at the court/shelter and when we are leaving there to come back.
If it’s court a lot of times a member is travelling the same highway to the same proceeding as well.
