Okla. AG's Victim Services Unit Wins OSBI Award

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Attorney General Victim Services Unit has received the Director's Award from the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.

The annual award is the highest honor bestowed to someone other than an OSBI employee. It is reserved for the citizen, business or non-law enforcement agency that champions the cause of law enforcement, crime prevention or through some action provides a unique and dramatic impact on a law enforcement or crime-related situation or issue.

Attorney General Scott Pruitt says the Victim Services Unit does a great job walking hand-in-hand with crime victims and their families as they interact with the legal system. The unit also provides training and assistance to help law enforcement agencies better serve crime victims.
