Tennessee Sheriffs Receive Statewide Automated Victim Information Notification Training
SAVIN Program Manager Ret. Sheriff Beth Ashe and Coalition Executive Director Kathy Walsh recently conducted a Tennessee Statewide Automated Victim Information Notification (TN-SAVIN) training session during the Tennessee Sheriffs' Association's 2008 Training Conference. Arkansas Sheriff Ronnie Baldwin, an executive board member of the National Sheriffs' Association (NSA) who serves on NSA's Domestic Violence Committee and the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) National SAVIN Standards Committee, was the featured guest presenter. The initial SAVIN kick-off training was held in Louisville, Kentucky earlier this year with VINE service provider, Appriss, Inc.
