Crime Victims Rights' Week
April 18-24 is National Crime Victims’ Rights week a time to celebrate the progress achieved, raise awareness of victims’ rights and services, and stand with our families, neighbors, friends, and colleagues whose lives have been forever altered by crime.
The VCJC recognizes that law enforcement plays a role in supporting victims of crime and are often the entry point in a system that can seem overwhelming and difficult to navigate. We appreciate the work of our colleagues, the systems and community advocates, who walk alongside our neighbors during some of their most difficult days.
This year’s NCVRW theme is “Support Victims. Build Trust. Engage Communities.” In that spirit we share the following resources to aid law enforcement and our partners in supporting our communities.
