In August of 2016 the newly formed Lamoille County Child Advocacy Center and Lamoille County Special Investigation Unit (LCSIU) moved into our new location at the Grant House at 111 Main St. in Hyde Park. Our new center enhances our ability to provide a safe, accomodating and child friendly space for victims and their families. As well as a better working environment for our detectives, victim advocate and prosecutor to interview and meet with victims. Child Advocacy Centers thrive to provide a neutral, non-law enforcement, non-threatenting setting for families to feel comfortable to come to and address their concerns.
We received recognition and status as an Associate Member with the National Children’s Alliance. With this membership, our center is held to a high set of standards. As members we will be working towards full accreditation over the next 5 years.
Our agency is a multi-disciplinary taskforce (MDT) created to conduct criminal investigations and provide victim services in response to reports of child sexual abuse, sexual offenses, serious child physical abuse, as well as abuse of vulnerable adults and the elderly in Lamoille County, Vermont. These cases require special expertise in the area of investigation, prosecution, and victim advocacy to enhance protection, facilitate court proceedings, and assure accountability. LCSIU proactively investigates all reports of abuse and will aggressively prosecute any substantiated crime.
The goal of the operation of the Child Advocacy Center/LCSIU is to promote cooperative efforts between municipalities, police agencies, prosecutor's office, the medical community, child protection services, and victim advocacy groups. LCSIU will strive to conduct quality investigations that result in prosecution, reduce stress and trauma to the victim, and protect the victim and community.
We look forward to serving the people of Lamoille County as we grow our Center.
