The cooperative agreement awardee will design and develop a handbook to assist probation and parole officers in understanding the rights statutorily granted to victims of crime, the importance of considering the needs of victims, and the potential benefits of engaging them in the offender reentry process. The handbook should also provide strategies for communicating with victims in a safe, productive manner that promotes understanding and collaboration. The handbook is not intended to be an extensive, all-encompassing document, but a practical guide to promote effective communication between officers and victims.
