Kendall County utilizes Victim Sensitive Interview Room

 

The Will County Child Advocacy Center, created by Will County State’s Attorney James W. Glasgow in 1985, is proud to announce that on March 10th, Kendall County began utilizing its own Victim Sensitive Interview Room in the new Department of Human Services building in Yorkville, Illinois. In a continuing collaborative agreement between Glasgow and Kendall County State’s Attorney Tim McCann and with financial support from Kendall County, the Will County Child Advocacy Center will continue to provide trained forensic staff to conduct the interviews, allowing traumatized children to be served close to home, rather than traveling to the Advocacy Center in downtown Joliet.

The Child Advocacy Center is responsible for conducting victim sensitive interviews with children who have been victims of sexual or severe physical abuse, and provides a child-friendly environment and aids in the prosecution of these cases. For more information about the Will County Child Advocacy Center, call Executive Director Sue Bloch at 815-727-0710.
