Victim Impact Panel

To help deter repeat offenses, Prevail partners with the Hamilton County Probation Department in providing quarterly Victim Impact Panels. All first-time offenders arrested for alcohol or drug related offenses while operating a motor vehicle are mandated to attend. Powerful presentations from individuals, – both victims and perpetrators – affected by drunk driving highlight how an individual’s actions can have far reaching effects. The goal of the program is to impact the participants’ awareness about drunk driving in hopes of deterring similar incidents in the future.

All sessions are held at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds and begin at 7:00pm. Contact Kelsey Kanne, at 317-773-6942 or for more information.

"I appreciate the understanding, acceptance and patience I'm shown. I appreciate being allowed to grieve and experience the full range of emotions I have while still being treated like I am okay and capable of recovering. I appreciate that I am believed about what has happened and it is not minimized. I appreciate being treated with kindness and respect, not pity or with lots of advice; more exposed to ideas, allowed to process and encouraged to act as I see fit and supported throughout the experience of it all."
