Alaska Victimization Survey featured in story on KCAW 104.7,90.1 community radio in Southeast Alaska

"Domestic violence survey to focus on Alaska’s smaller communities" was a featured story on Raven Radio KCAW community radio on March 16, 2012.  KCAW broadcasts to the rural Southeast Alaskan communities of Sitka, Angoon, Elfin Cove, Kake, Pelican, Port Alexander, Tenakee Springs and Yakutat, as well as a wide expanse of the coastal fishing grounds.

The story, by reporter Robert Woolsey, describes the most recent phase of the Alaska Victimization Survey which began in 2010.  In 2012, the survey is being conducted in three regions of the state: the City and Borough of Sitka, the Kodiak Island Borough, as well as the Bethel and Wade Hampton census areas.

The Alaska Victimization Survey is funded by the Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault. Dr. André Rosay, UAA Justice Center Director, is the principal investigator for this study.
