|County to observe National Crime Victims Rights Week
Sonoma County will take part in observing National Crime Victims’ Rights Week April 6-12.
A morning celebration on April 8 will begin with a Gold Resolution presented by the Board of Supervisors at 10 a.m., followed by a reception and program at 10:30 a.m. outside the board chambers in the hallway of 575 Administration Dr. in Santa Rosa. The Victim Services Division of the Sonoma County District Attorney’s Office is organizing this event. The public, community leaders and partners, law enforcement, and victim services professionals are invited to attend.
“We are pleased to raise public awareness about victims’ rights during National Crime Victims’ Rights Week,” District Attorney Jill Ravitch said. “We support victims and survivors of crime as they seek to rebuild their lives.”
This year’s theme is “30 Years: Restoring the Balance of Justice,” which is a reminder to celebrate the progress made over the past 30 years in honoring and supporting victims. The Victim Services Division of the District Attorney’s Office guides victims through the criminal justice system, links them to community resources and assists them with victim compensation and restitution to recover crime related losses. It is on track to serve 3,200 crime victims in the 2013-2014 fiscal year.
