Proclamation - Victim Rights Week

Commissioners' President John Barr presented a proclamation to States' Attorney's Office Victims Rights Coordinator Jill Ritter and staff designating April 13-19 as Victims' Rights Week in Washington County.
This annual commemorative week, first marked in 1981, allows Washington County to demonstrate its support for crime victims and those who serve them. It also educates our citizens about violence, victimization and the importance of support for victims' rights and services.
The proclamation lends official recognition to the important work of helping crime victims and serving their needs.
