The province announced a $267,000 expansion of the police-based victim services program on Thursday.

The program provides a number of services to victims of crime and traumatic events.

Acting victim services director Dwight Lawrence says the new money will be used to build upon the existing program by extending it into a number of central Saskatchewan communities.

“The program development is part of a province wide expansion to provide services in some of those detachment areas and police jurisdictions that didn’t have a victim services yet,” he says.

The victim services program will now be offered in 15 new police jurisdictions including Biggar, Craik, Humboldt, Kindersley and Martensville.

Lawrence adds the program helps victims deal with what can be a complex justice system.

“They provide emotional support, information about the justice system, referrals to other human services types of organizations that provide counseling services and other support. They really help victims navigate the criminal justice system which at times can be confusing and stressful.”

The victim services program is funded through the Ministry of Justice.

Cameco’s 2013 annual report is out and profits are up.

The report shows a 12 per cent increase in gross profits at the uranium mining company last year from $540 million to $607 million.

Revenues were also up by 29 per cent compared to 2012 from $1.9 billion to $2.4 billion.

However, the annual report says Cameco faced some short-term challenges in 2013 including downward pressure on uranium prices and market uncertainty caused by the slowness of Japanese nuclear reactor restarts.

Cash provided by operations after working capital changes was down by 8 per cent to $530 million.

Market uncertainty has also caused Cameco to abandon a uranium production growth target of 36 million pounds by 2018.
