It's National Crime Victims' Rights Week!

Every April, communities throughout the country observe National Crime Victims' Rights Week (NCVRW).  This year it runs from April 10-16.

The Office of Victims of Crime, which helps promote NCVRW, explains this year's theme, Serving Victims. Building Trust. Restoring Hope., as a way to "underscore the importance of early intervention and victim services in establishing trust with victims, which in turn begins to restore their hope for healing and recovery."

It is important to raise awareness of victims' rights because there are still many unmet needs that need addressed.

For more information, visit the Office for Victims of Crime website, or view the NCVRW Resource Guide
