Where: Victorian Square, Downtown Sparks
Who: Staff members from the District Attorney’s Office including: Supervisor, Mark Covington (Investigations/VWAC), Michelle Johnson (Family Support), Tammy Rianda and Julie Skow (Administration) and Debbi Robison (CARES SART)
Additional Information: Staff members from the District Attorney’s office have attended several evenings this summer reaching out to community members during this special event. This is the third year that the DA’s staff has been at the Farmer’s Market.
Washoe County District Attorney, Dick Gammick, says it provides an excellent opportunity for his staff to interact with the community. “We get the chance to greet people and talk about what we do. Our Family Support Division answers many questions as does our Fraud Check Program, Investigations, Administration and the Washoe County CARES (Child Abuse Response & Evaluations) SART (Sexual Assault Response Team). Each of these programs has representatives out with us.” Gammick continued, “We have literature on issues such as Cyber-bullying, Your Child’s Internet Safety Net, Bullying, Teens and Driving, Drunk, Drugged or drowsy, Don’t Drive Impaired, Avoiding Sexual Coercion and more.”
In addition, the materials that are given away to the public are not paid for from the General Fund.
