TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A longtime advocate for children and victims of domestic violence has been named director of victim services in the Kansas Department of Corrections.
Department Secretary Ray Roberts announced the appointment of Audrey Cress on Wednesday.
The Office of Victim Services provides information such as inmate status to the victims of offenders serving time in the Kansas prison system.
Cress has worked since 2007 with SAFEHOME Inc., a nonprofit organization that works to reduce domestic violence through a variety of programs. Before that she worked for The Family Conservancy, which promotes healthy childhood development.
