NYPD improves victim services

This article describes enhancements that NYPD has made to victim services over the last 4-5 years. The agency has adopted 101 initiatives “infused with trauma-informed practices, a raft of changes in police training, and an overriding goal to connect more victims with available counseling and reimbursement for funerals, medical costs, lost wages, and other disruptions in their lives.” Many of the practices are cost-free, with one exception being the addition of two victim advocates to each precinct and public housing unit.

    Great article. I wonder who came up with waterproof sheets and privacy screens for the crime scenes? I also wonder how much manpower is tied up in providing these services like the detective telling the victims about the progress of their cases?
