North Carolina Conference of DAs partners with Marsy’s Law for All to develop law enforcement training tool
Prosecutors and victims’ rights advocates work together to implement constitutional amendment
RALEIGH, N.C. – One hundred North Carolina sheriffs and 365 chiefs of police now have a new training tool in their belts thanks to efforts by the N.C. Conference of District Attorneys in partnership with Marsy’s Law for All.
RALEIGH, NC. (August 27, 2019) – Legislation to implement Marsy’s Law, the constitutional amendment to strengthen victims’ rights approved by voters last year, has passed through the N.C. House and is one step closer to becoming law. Lawmakers, advocates, and criminal justice professionals have worked relentlessly to ensure victims receive the rights they so strongly deserve and to ensure that the bill gives guidance to the agencies tasked with enforcing Marsy’s Law. The decision now lies with the Senate on whether to pass the bill before the constitutional amendment goes into effect on August 31.
