LAS VEGAS (AP) - Nevada state Attorney General Catherine Cortez
Masto is seeking five new members from various parts of the state
for her Nevada Council for the Prevention of Domestic Violence.
The application deadline is Friday.
Masto chairs the panel. It can have up to 30 members, but
currently has just 25.
The AG says the goal is to have a culturally diverse and
representative group involved with the issue in various ways.
Meetings are held quarterly in Reno or Las Vegas.
Members include educators, business and health professionals,
service providers, law enforcers, judges, advocates and domestic
violence victims or survivors.
The panel goal is to increase awareness and advocacy for legal
and medical services for survivors, and to advise the governor and
Legislature on statewide domestic violence policy.
