Special Victims

Special Victims Prosecution Resource Program:

Catherine Vannier is the Special Victims Resource Prosecutor for the Missouri Office of Prosecution Services. She has been developing Missouri's Special Victims Prosecution Resource Program since its inception in late 2006. The program strives to maximize the effectiveness of prosecutors, law enforcement and all of our allied professionals on family violence, sexual assault, elder abuse, child abuse, and human trafficking cases through training, technical assistance, and resources.

Trainings in the areas of family violence and sexual assault consist of an annual statewide conference, local and regional trainings, as well as on-line trainings or "webinars".
