Children's Justice Center
Montana Attorney General Steve Bullock has announced the creation of the Children's Justice Center.
The Justice Center, which is three years in the making, is a collaborative effort to better protect Montana children and prosecute child predators. Bullock says the effectiveness of the new partnership will progress the way sex offenders are investigated, prosecuted and convicted.
"I think we've made great strides and what this does is brings it together and truly in talking to some of my colleagues from other states that I think what we're building in Montana, what we build in Montana is a model that others in the nation will try to follow." says Bullock.
The Center brings together six Department of Justice programs and two statewide partnerships. The new grouping of programs will also change the way the State approaches child victims in helping them recover.
