Yolo County’s Victim Services Division and the Multi-Disciplinary Interview Center — where children and developmentally delayed adults who are victims of crimes are interviewed — were showcased this week during a visit by two state officials.

Marybel Batjer, secretary of the Government Operations Agency, which is responsible for administering state operations, and Julie Nauman, executive officer of the state’s Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board, spent Tuesday touring the Yolo County District Attorney’s Office and the MDIC.

Batjer oversees CalVCP, a program that provides services and compensation for victims of violent crimes. Batjer also served as Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s cabinet secretary from 2003 to 2005.

The visitors met with District Attorney Jeff Reisig, Victim Services Program Manager Laura Valdes and Chief Deputy District Attorney Jonathan Raven. Valdes introduced the group to Aloha, the district attorney’s comfort dog. Valdes then took the group on a tour of the courthouse and the MDIC, where director Cameron Handley discussed the importance of child advocacy centers.

“It’s not every day that a governor’s secretary comes to visit us in Woodland and I’m glad the secretary had the opportunity to see what a huge impact Laura and Cameron and their staff have on our crime victims,” Reisig said.

Added Batjer, “I am so impressed by the services Yolo County provides for victims of crimes. The work of these organizations makes such a huge difference in so many lives, including those of children who have already been through so much.”
