MAYS LANDING– Join the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office and our partners for the National Crime Victims’ Rights Week Forum on April 8, 2019.
This program, offered by Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon G. Tyner, will provide an open forum for our local law enforcement officials to speak directly to the community to highlight their continued efforts to have open lines of communication and foster a positive relationship with their residents. The panelists will each have an opportunity speak about their respective agencies’ community engagement and law enforcement efforts. Executive Director Lester will provide insight on how VCCO provides key support to victims of crime as well. There will be question and answer period at the end of the program if time permits.
National Crime Victims’ Rights Week will be commemorated April 7–13, 2019. This year’s theme—Honoring Our Past. Creating Hope for the Future.—celebrates the progress made by those before us as we look to a future of crime victim services that is even more inclusive, accessible, and trauma-informed.
Join the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s, our law enforcement partners and community organizations this April to raise awareness of victims’ rights and services, highlight local programs, celebrate progress achieved, and honor victims and the professionals who serve them.
