Tressa Dixon, supervisor of the Columbia Police Department’s Victim Services Unit, is the new president of the South Carolina Law Enforcement Victim Advocates Association.

Dixon, who joined CPD in 2002, was sworn in this week by S.C. Attorney General Alan Wilson at the S.C. Criminal Justice Academy’s Law Enforcement Officers Hall of Fame.

Dixon, who holds a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from California-headquartered Ashford University, also serves on the South Carolina Domestic Violence Advisory Committee and is the training coordinator for the South Carolina Law Enforcement Victim Advocate Association.

The police department’s victim advocates provide emotional and moral support to crime victims and serve as a liaison between victims, police officers and investigators, according to a news release.
