Chinese delegation visits Family Justice Center

By From page A3 | December 07, 2013

FAIRFIELD — District Attorney Donald A. du Bain this week hosted 20 dignitaries from Qingdao, China to show off local family violence prevention programs.

The Thursday morning event at the Solano County Family Justice Center was planned by the U.S.-China Exchange Council in Union City for Chinese officials of departments and bureaus of city government in Qingdao whose duties include human services and public safety.

Qingdao, which has a population of nearly 9 million people, is historically known as Tsingtao and is a major city in eastern Shandong Province in Eastern China.

Center director Carolyn Wold provided a tour of the client and children’s services areas and du Bain shared his office’s role in supporting victim safety, offender accountability and provided an overview of how domestic violence crimes are prosecuted.

At the completion of the tour, du Bain presented the leader of the delegation with a gift basket filled with Jelly Belly candies. Jelly Belly is one of the sponsors of the Solano Family Justice Center.
