National Crime Victims' Rights Week

Every year in April, the Howard County State's Attorney's Office joins with organizations, throughout our nation, in this week-long observance to promote victims' rights and to honor crime victims and those who advocate on their behalf.

This year's theme-- Strength, Resilience, Justice-- reflects a vision of the future; a future in which all victims are strengthened by the response they receive from victim services providers, organizations are resilient in response to challenges, and communities are able to seek collective justice and healing.

During National Crime Victims' Right Week, our office reaffirms our commitment to creating a victim service and criminal justice response that assists all victims of crime and works to build trust and hope in the communities we serve.
