New Hope Proclaims National Crime Victims’ Rights Week
Posted on 04/23/2024

The City of New Hope recognizes the importance of keeping its community safe and secure, and values the significant role played by crime victims in the criminal justice process. To honor and acknowledge this role, New Hope proclaimed April 21-27 as National Crime Victims’ Rights Week.

This year’s event marks the 43rd anniversary of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, and the theme is “How Would You Help?” The theme emphasizes the importance of providing options, services, and homes for crime survivors, and highlights the need to create safe environments for crime victims to share their experiences.

Significant progress has been made in improving the treatment of crime victims since the passage of the Victims of Crime Act in 1984. This progress has been achieved through the efforts of thousands of victims and survivors, who have turned their experiences into a positive force, ensuring that others receive justice, meaningful assistance, and compassionate treatment before the law.

The New Hope City Council, City of New Hope, and New Hope Police Department reaffirm their commitment to creating a victim service and criminal justice response that assists all victims of crime. They also express sincere gratitude and appreciation for the community members, victim service providers, and criminal justice professionals who are committed to improving the response to all victims of crime. This commitment is intended to ensure that victims of crime find relevant assistance, support, justice, and peace during National Crime Victimsʹ Rights Week, and throughout the year.
