District Attorney’s office provides outreach at Sparks Farmer’s Market


WASHOE COUNTY NEWS — The Washoe County District Attorney’s community outreach team will be at tonight’s Sparks Farmer’s Market events in Victorian Square to answer questions residents may have about a variety of topics and programs.

“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, including the Washoe County Child Abuse Response & Evaluations team (CARES) and the Sexual Assault Response Team (SART).”

Gammick also said programs will have representatives at the Sparks Farmer’s Market on Victorian Avenue. “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 p.m. – 8 p.m. For more information, visit Sparks Farmer’s Market.
