AWARD WINNING PROGRAMS
02 SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT
Under Kirsten’s leadership, the Missoula SVU has grown from an historical single person to a trained team of 8 full time employees, including 4 attorneys, a supervisor, investigator, paralegal and victim witness coordinator. The team has traveled to provide trainings to other communities seeking to implement best practices and secure convictions. The Attorney General’s Office has shared the Missoula SVU team’s manual for Prosecuting Sexual Assault Cases with every prosecutor in Montana as a compilation of best practices in bringing sexual offenders to justice through victim-centered prosecution.
“The Missoula County Attorney’s Office represents the model for the rest of the country, not just Montana. . . Members of the Missoula community should be proud of their county attorney team for the great work that’s been done.”
– Montana Attorney General. Tim Fox
