Bohanan started the Ambassador program three months ago at the Taraval Station, where he works. Under the program, Bohanan checks in on victims of violent crimes — crimes where there are no suspects or witnesses — to make sure they are receiving the help and services they need to recover, Taraval Station police Capt. Paul Chignell said.
"We just want people to know they aren’t alone," Bohanan said.
Once contacted, victims can be connected with everything from counseling to crime-prevention tips, sources of food or even adult day-care, Chignell said.
Already, other stations have been phoning Bohanan to find out how to replicate his program, he said.
