“It provides an excellent opportunity for us to interact with the community because we get the chance to greet people and talk about what we do,” said Washoe County District Attorney Dick Gammick. “Our Family Support Division answers many questions, as does our investigations and administration departments, the Washoe County Child Abuse Response & Evaluations team (CARES) and the Sexual Assault Response Team (SART).”

Gammick also said each program will have representatives at the Sparks Farmer’s Market on Victorian Avenue June 13, July 11, and a date in August which will be determined soon. “We have literature on issues such as cyber-bullying, your child’s Internet safety net, bullying, teens and driving drunk, drugged or drowsy, avoiding sexual coercion and more.”

The Sparks Farmer’s Market hours are 3:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. For more information, visit the Sparks Farmer’s Market website.
