Canyon County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Monica Morrison has received the 2017 Idaho Victim Witness Service Award from the Idaho Victim Witness Association for her work in the field of domestic violence. Morrison is the supervisor of the felony domestic violence caseload at the Canyon County Prosecutor’s Office.  She is a natural leader when it comes to prosecuting domestic violence and stalking cases.  Morrison has spent countless hours at night and on the weekends working with law enforcement to make sure that cases are handled correctly from the very beginning, and is always willing to walk warrants through and stay after hours to assist law enforcement and victim witness coordinators.  She is a prosecutor that has never just done her job; she always uses her legal talent to pursue the most difficult cases – and she wins them.  Her pursuit of justice is infectious and she always makes those around her want to do their best.

Morrison is a champion for change in the system and has been a strong proponent of the Canyon County Domestic Violence Court and Domestic Violence Task Force.  She has built strong allegiances with all law enforcement agencies in Canyon County and officers trust her and know that she is among the best and brightest prosecutors in the State of Idaho.  Morrison is also a board member for Advocates Against Family Violence and always finds the time to volunteer at victim events throughout the community.

Congratulations Monica on receiving the Idaho Victim Witness Service Award for 2017!
