Oklahoma Chapter of the United Nations Association Honors Attorney General Staff Member with the 2012 Public Service Award
OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma Chapter of the General Assembly of the United Nations has chosen Attorney General staff member Brandi Woods-Littlejohn as the 2012 recipient of the OKC Public Service Award.
Woods-Littlejohn is the program manager for Oklahoma’s Domestic Violence Fatality
Review Board, which is managed by the Attorney General’s Office. The board reviews Oklahoma deaths due to domestic violence and, as needed, seeks changes to the system to prevent future deaths of Oklahoma’s vulnerable citizens.
“We are very proud of Brandi and the work she has done along with the staff members in the AG’s Victim Services Unit. They work hard every day to improve the lives of Oklahomans and protect them from harm,” Attorney General Scott Pruitt said.
To commemorate “Public Service Day,” the Oklahoma City chapter of the General Assembly of the United Nations created the UNA-OKC Public Service Award. The award honors “a county, state or other governmental employee whose work serves to promote better standards of life.”
“Domestic violence is a pernicious problem with local as well as global dimensions. Ms. Woods-Littlejohn has demonstrated a commitment to excellence and innovation that helps to inform the work of victim advocates, law enforcement officers, child welfare personnel, and many others,” said UNA-OKC chapter president Bill Bryant.
Woods-Littlejohn has been program manager for the Oklahoma’s Domestic Violence Fatality Review board since it was created in 2001.
