The office of the district attorney wholeheartedly believes victims should be given the information and assistance they need to make informed decisions about their own lives as they recover from crime. An important element in promoting victim empowerment is providing an atmosphere where victims are believed and supported by their community. In such an atmosphere, victims feel safer and are more apt to share that they have been victimized and reach out for assistance. Furthermore, when we engage communities in victim response, they are better prepared to believe victims when they come forward and provide support throughout their journey to healing.
In honor of National Crime Victim’s Rights Week we will be sponsoring a walk to be held April 18th, 9a-1p at Pioneer Park.
