VIP does victim impact panels throughout the state of Missouri. The panel sessions inform and educate offenders of impaired driving, traffic violations, and minors in possession, about the dangers of driving a vehicle in an irresponsible and careless manner. The results of their decision-making can often cause trauma that has a rippling effect on all who are involved; whether it is the victim, the family, or the professional.
VIP Programs began on May 15, 1990. The panels are in the memory of David Kessler 25 years old, 1985 alcohol-related fatality and Robert Rich a 12-year-old, 1982 traffic fatality.
