TAYLOR, Texas – The Taylor Police Department (TPD) has been awarded a grant for more than $73,000 from the Office of the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division to help fund a new position of Victim Services Coordinator. The purpose of the Victim Services Program is to provide assistance directly to victims of crime to speed their recovery and aid them through the criminal justice process.

 

The grant will fund 80% of the total project cost, with Taylor providing the remaining 20 percent of the total project cost of cash or in-kind contributions, as required by the grant guidelines, equal to $18,264. TPD received notice in September that it was successful in its grant application, which was written by Beth Wilkes, Support Services Administrator.

 

The annual grant allows TPD to support victims of crime by filling system gaps and promote innovative solutions to common problems. Services may include the following:  responding to the emotional and physical needs of crime victims, assist them in stabilizing their lives after victimization, help them navigate through the Criminal Justice System and its public proceedings as a result of the crime, provide strategies to avoid re-victimization and break the cycle of violence, and to provide victims with a safety plan.

 

“We are pleased to be able to hire for this new position,” said TPD Chief Henry Fluck. “This grant funded position will allow us to improve our services to the residents of Taylor who need it the most:  victims of violent crime. City Council approved our efforts last February to submit the grant application, as well as our future applications for 2018 and 2019.”

 

Costs associated with the Victim Services Coordinator job will decrease in subsequent years, as outlay for initial items, such as a computer, office equipment, and furniture, are set-up expenses in the initial year.         

 

The Victim Services Coordinator position is posted and any qualified applicants may apply via the Taylor Human Resources Department. TPD hopes to have someone hired to begin work in November.
