Mid-Missouri law enforcement officials work with specific advocates
Local law enforcement officials want to be clear: They work only with certain victim advocacy groups.Helen Wilbers
In Callaway County, that’s the Coalition Against Rape and Domestic Violence. In Cole County, it’s the Rape and Abuse Crisis Service and Cole County Prosecutors Victims Advocate.
During a Dec. 29 meeting, Callaway County Sheriff Clay Chism, Fulton Police Chief Steve Myers and Holts Summit Police Chief Kyle McIntyre affirmed they’re currently not working with any other groups.
“We had several community members reach out to us,” Chism said. “Based on inquiries we’d received we felt it imperative to reach out to clarify that we have a longstanding partnership with CARDV.”
