Los Angeles: During the week of April 6 through 12, 2003, dedicated service providers, justice and allied professionals, policy makers and community volunteers will join together across America to commemorate the 23rd Anniversary of the National Crime Victims’ Rights Week. This year’s theme is "Victims’ Rights: Fulfill the Promise" which emphasizes America’s promise to treat victims with dignity and compassion; to help identify and meet their most important needs; and to provide them with information about their statutory and constitutional rights.
The Los Angeles Police Department encourages the community to join together during the 2003 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, and recognize not only victims of crime, but also those who assist victims on a daily basis. All Department geographic Areas have been notified to coordinate and/or to participate in these important events.
For additional information about 2003 National Crime Victims’ Right Week, please contact Community Relations Section, Officer Marco Jimenez, at 213- 485-3134.
