During its recent annual business meeting, the Tennessee District
Attorneys General Conference named Eighth District Attorney General
Jared Effler chairman of its Victim/Witness Steering Committee. This
committee is comprised of District Attorneys General and victim
witness coordinators from across the state and is charged with
improving services to crime victims and witnesses, along with
overseeing training certification for victim witness coordinators from
Tennessee’s thirty-one (31) judicial districts.

General Effler stated: “It is a high honor to have been chosen by
my colleagues to chair this important committee. I look forward to
working with this committee and the Tennessee District Attorneys
General Conference to improve services offered to crime victims and
to ensure that crime victims are never a forgotten part of our criminal
justice system.”
