Mc Coy, Director of the Victim Witness Assistance Program for the Cobb County Judicial Circuit and Gregory W.

The announcement was made during the 15 th annual CJCC Victim Assistance Training Conference May 20-22, 2008 at the Eagle Awards luncheon.

The awards are given to individuals who, in the judgment of the Victim Service Awards Steering Committee, 1) provide outstanding service within the justice system or the service delivery system in supporting victims of crime; 2) have developed, implemented, or significantly enhanced a pilot or model program designed to address victims of crime; 3) have made significant contributions in the area of crime prevention; 4) or have made a significant impact on the manner in which the community, justice system, public agencies, or the service delivery system responds to victims of crime.

The Prosecuting Attorneys' Council congratulates these outstanding members of the prosecution community.
