On the 10th of May, APAV inaugurated the new Victim Support Office of Alto Alentejo Oeste. The new Victim Support Office has the support of the Municipality of Ponte de Sor and its mission is to provide support to the municipalities of Alter do Chão, Avis, Crato, Gavião, Fronteira, Nisa, Ponte de Sor and Sousel, providing support to victims that are living in a territory characterized by populations dispersion. The prevention of criminality and violence in the western area of Alto Alentejo is also a gamble for this new and innovative service, based on the mobility and flexibility toward the territory and the population.
This innovative service comes from the operationalization of the Collaboration Protocol, signed on the 14th of March 2017 with the State Secretary for Citizenship and Equality, Catarina Marcelino, eight municipalities members of the Intermunicipal Community of Alto Alentejo, the Commission for Citizenship and Equality of Gender (CIG), the decentralized services of the direct administration of the State in the areas of Social Security, Education, Health and Professional Training, the services of the Ministry of Justice in the areas of Legal Medicine, Reinsertion and Penitentiary Services, the Commissions of Children and Youngster Protection, GNR, PSP, Fire Fighters and Polytechnic Institute of Portalegre.
