The Victims Impact Panel is a panel of victims of intoxicated drivers, telling their stories to an audience of both mandated (court ordered) individuals and guests. The program is approximately two hours in length. The panel is facilitated by an Oregon State
Police Officer and County Sheriff’s Office. Panel members are carefully screened and are offered guidance. Each panel member speaks for 10-15 minutes about their personal story of how a drunk driver has affected their lives. A graphic slide show is included in the presentation. Following the panel, you are encouraged to make written comments regarding the presentation.
