Victim Impact Panel

Victim Impact Panels provide a forum for victims of alcohol related crashes to tell DUI/DWAI offenders about the impact of drunk driving on their lives. The panels are a joint venture between the Criminal Justice System and The Recovery Center.

Panels involve 3-4 victims whose loved ones have been killed, or those who were injured themselves, and may also include law enforcement and emergency medical personnel who continually experience the effects of alcohol related crashes. The program is designed for all court referrals that have been mandated to attend the program.

Dates: Victim Impact Panels meet on the last Thursday of every other month at 7:00 p.m. at the Justice Building in Cortez. Each panel lasts approximately one hour.
