The South Alabama Victim Services Collaborative Multi-Disciplinary Team comprised of victim services representatives and multiple law enforcement agencies and municipal court personnel from Covington and Butler counties met on Wed., March 1, at the Wilbur Williams Law Enforcement Training Center with Circuit Judge Ben Bowden, Circuit Clerk Amy Jones and members of her staff to develop ways to better assist and serve victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking.

The meeting consisted of developing policies and protocols for law enforcement agencies and court personnel to improve the working relationship from law enforcement to the courts and to enhance the services available to victims of these types of crimes by YAP Adult Services, a nonprofit organization.

Andalusia Police Chief Paul Hudson, Chairman of the SAVSC, and all members of the South Alabama Victims Services Collaborative would like to thank Judge Bowden and Mrs. Jones and staff for their time, assistance, and dedication to providing the best possible service to the citizens of Covington County.
