 The Panel is a rare tool for us to combat these crimes, and the Panel Members and the District Attorney’s Office thank you for your continued support of the VIP.  


The Niagara County District Attorney’s Office presents the Theodore A. Brenner Victim Impact Panel every third Tuesday of each month, promptly at 7:00pm on the campus of Niagara County Community College.  The registration process for attendees and protocols that must be followed to ensure the safe and successful continuation of the Panel is listed below:


Defendants must call and register to attend the Panel.  They can call (716) 439-7086 between the hours of 9:00am and 5:00pm weekdays to do so. 

Unless there exists dire circumstances, they are not to be accompanied by anyone into the Panel; drivers, parents, spouses, etc. must remain outside the building.  If a defendant believes they have a need for a companion during the panel, that issue must be addressed during the registration process.

Due to limited capacity and the complicated admission process for entry to the building, no last minute requests cannot be entertained.

If a defendant has some health concern or other issue that prevents their physical attendance, such circumstances should be addressed during the registration process.


The Panel will commence promptly at 7:00pm.  We ask that attendees arrive thirty (30) minute early to allow for proper screening procedures and prevent delay.

We will be observing strict adherence to social distancing measures, and EVERYONE MUST WEAR A MASK.

The NCCC campus requires all entrants to complete a COVID-19 screening questionnaire, which has been provided.  The Court can forward the link to defendants, or provide a hard-copy.  The link is: https://ncccbanner.itec.suny.edu/PROD/zcv19survpub.P_SubmitRequest. The form must be completed the day of the event. Upon completing the form, a confirmation page will display a visitor ID.  This ID will need to be provided to the COVID screener upon entering the building. The screener will review the submitted answers and will grant or deny entry depending on the answers provided. (link to the form)

Temperatures will be checked by campus security personnel, at which time the visitor ID/ questionnaires mentioned above must be provided with accurate information as of the day of the Panel.

Defendants will be spaced no less than six feet apart when seated, there will be no permitted restroom breaks or departures from the room once the Panel begins.

We must all work together to make sure our measures work, to prevent the spread of the virus, to ease the stress in our lives.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation

New York’s STOP-DWI program is the Nations’ first and, to date, only self-sustaining impaired driving program. Other States have implemented components of self-sufficiency, but none to the degree of New York State.
