Victim Advocate Case Review Program expanding to Moose Jaw, Prince Albert

The Victim Advocate Case Review program is being expanded into Moose Jaw and Prince Albert.
V.A.C.R.s allow community experts to work with police on closed sexual assault files to help determine challenges and identify opportunities to improve investigation outcomes is cases that were deemed unfounded.
The program will work through the Moose Jaw Transition House, the Moose Jaw Police Service and the Regina and Area Sexual Assault Centre.

“Once again, our province is leading the way for Canada by providing funding and support to community agencies who will partner with police to review closed cases in order to improve investigations of sexual assaults in our communities and increase accountability for offenders,” Corrections, Policing and Public Safety Minister Christine Tell said in a media release.

Regina and Saskatoon piloted the program in 2021 and 2022.
