Colleagues from all levels of government and across communities - including victims' services, public health, and juvenile justice - will convene to share innovations and best practices, leverage strategies and resources, and pursue solutions through presentations and peer engagements.
The U.S. Department of Justice is committed to improving the nation's public safety and response to crime victims; its Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) plays a critical role in changing policies and practices that promote justice and healing for all victims of crime. Partnerships are critical to ensuring that our youngest and most vulnerable crime victims are supported.
In that collaborative spirit, OVC is pleased to be partnering with the Bureau of Justice Assistance's (BJA) Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Program (COAP) to bring together multidisciplinary teams and experts that comprise our nation's critical and integral response to these urgent issues.
To those ends, and in pursuit of these goals of serving and supporting America's children and youth affected by the opioid crisis, OVC and BJA's COAP are hosting a two-day national meeting in the Washington, DC, area.
