Albany--Preventing sexual assaults and helping victims.

Those were the goals of a workshop in Albany tonight. Albany State University's Criminal Justice Department hosted the workshop as part of sexual violence awareness month.

Attendees got information on how to reduce the risk of an attack and how to cope with an assault.

They also learned who they should contact if they are assaulted.

"The whole thing is about empowerment, we have some speakers that will talk about how to reach them, where to go, who to call, what to do when it happens. We also have some excellent speakers who would be speaking on different issues about assault." Said ASU Criminal Justice & Forensic Science Professor Charles Ochie. 

The workshop included speakers from several law enforcement agencies and the Dougherty District Attorney's Office.
