Grant giving Danville Commonwealth Attorney's Office option to hire more help

Annual grant office receives increased this year

DANVILLE, Va. – A local commonwealth attorney's office could soon have extra help dealing with victims and witnesses.

The Danville office has received a state grant worth $44,635.

It is an annual grant, but for 2017 the amount has been increased.

This gives the commonwealth attorney the option to hire a second assistant to work with the office's victim-witness coordinator.

A first reading for an ordinance to appropriate the money will be held at the May 16 City Council meeting.
