NATIONAL CRIME VICTIMS' RIGHTS WEEK OBSERVED

Murder victims (3)

Commissioners Court proclaimed April 8-14 as National Crime Victims' Rights Week and is dedicated to strengthening victims and survivors in the aftermath of crime.

Hidalgo County Criminal District Attorney Ricardo Rodriguez Jr. presented the proclamation reaffirming the county's commitment to assisting victims of crime.

“We are all working together for one ultimate reason, to help victims,” said Rodriguez.  “We now have 32 victim liaisons, which compromise the Hidalgo County Crime Victims Unit.”

Years of investment in crime victim rights and services have developed a system that can help victims recover from crime.

National Crime Victim’s Rights Week provides an opportunity to recommit to ensuring that all victims of crime – especially those who are challenging to reach or serve – are afforded their rights and receive a trauma-informed response, reads the proclamation.

More than 40 people joined the Rodriguez and his staff in supporting the resolution, including families of homicide victims, local police departments, the Sheriff's Office, and community organizations.
