I didn’t see the crime occur.  Witnesses are not limited to “eye witness,” and may not know they know an important fact. We have help for the Victim and the Witness.

National Crime Victim Rights Week 2016

This year the prosecutor’s Office will be celebrating National Crime Victim Rights Week with a community event on April 15, 2016, from 4-7pm at Brown’s Corner Church.

Many local service providers will be present with information about their services. We will award the winners of the Going to Court Cover Contest.

Several survivors will be present to speak about their experience. We have a speaker who will talk about PTSO in the context of those who have faced the trauma of sexual assault or domestic violence. While speakers are talking to the adults, the kids have their own separate presentation with our school police officers about personal safety.

We will have many prizes to raffle off (must be present to win) and food!

The event is FREE to attend. We would love to see you there!!
