National Crime Victims’ Rights Week is April 22nd -28th -- Extending the Vision, Reaching Every Victim.

This week we celebrate the courage and sacrifice of victims and those in the criminal justice system who have dedicated their careers to serving them. In the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Washington, as in all the districts across the nation, we strive to provide thoughtful, nonjudgmental outreach and response to the needs of victims. We strive to protect crime victims’ rights and interests, and assist them through the prosecution process. Our Victim-Witness Unit works alongside Assistant U.S. Attorneys and legal support staff to reach each victim of every crime. We provide notice of rights, notice of every court hearing and assist victims in reaching their vision of recovery and resolution.

The U.S. Attorney’s Victim-Witness Unit joins the victim services community in observing this important national event to raise awareness of rights and services. Please visit the Washington Coalition of Crime Victim Advocates (WCCVA) web site for a comprehensive list of events statewide and view our Face Book ad at www.wccva.org .
