Crime Victims Rights Week April 10-16, 2011
Sponsored by: Board of Commissioners
Crime Victims' Rights Week
The District Attorney's Office partners with a number of county departments, non-profit organizations and law enforcement agencies to provide services to victims of crime in Washington County. The victims' services providers in Washington County include the District Attorney's Victim Assistance Program, Community Corrections' Center for Victims' Services, the Juvenile Department, the Elder Safe Program, the Domestic Violence Resource Center, the Sexual Assault Resource Center, and Beaverton and Hillsboro Police Agencies. Representatives from these programs work to assist victims through the criminal justice system, inform them of their rights as a victim and to enforce those rights. Victims' services providers also network to fill service gaps and seek out opportunities to educate citizens about crime victims' rights.
A proclamation declaring the week of April 10 to 16, 2011 to be Washington County Crime Victims' Rights Week was read and the District Attorney provided a presentation highlighting the activities and events of Crime Victims' Rights Week as well as the activism and advocacy efforts of the community partners.
