Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 26, 2013
Each April, the U.S. Department of Justice sponsors NCVRW in order to highlight the struggles and issues faced by those who have suffered at the hands of criminals. Across the country, various law enforcement professionals will hold lectures, appear on local media, and talk to schools about the victims’ rights. The week culminates in the National Crime Victims’ Service Awards ceremony in Washington D.C. on April 24th.
“In the discussions on crime, people often forget the victims,” said Mackenzie Kelly, a spokeswoman for Protect America. “We focus a lot on stopping crime and punishing criminals but we don’t focus enough on victims. National Crime Victims’ Rights Week is an excellent opportunity for law enforcement and related organizations to raise community involvement to help support victims of crime in their area.”
The theme for the 2013 NCVRW is “New Challenges. New Solutions.” The Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) at the Department of Justice is largely responsible for events and observance during NCVRW, which runs from April 21st to 27th, 2013. Anyone that’s interested in helping spread awareness for victims’ rights, the OVC offers a resource guide to help organize events.
