MADD Calgary's Victim Impact Panels (VIP)

The MADD Calgary chapter is pleased to now be able to offer

the Victim Impact Panel (VIP) service.

 

Some legal jurisdictions now mandate that an offender convicted

of impaired driving must attend a Victim Impact Panel session

to learn face to face the real-life impacts on victims of the decision

to drive after consuming alcohol.

 

The chapter has held a number of VIP sessions and expects

to organize more as the stipulation becomes more common

in legal jurisdictions.

 

For further information, contact the MADD Calgary chapter office.

or MADD Canada.
