National Crime Victims’ Rights Week Public Events

FLORENCE, AZ (April 21st, 2022) - In honor and recognition of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, the Pinal County Attorney’s Office will host several public events.

National Crime Victims’ Rights Week is taking place April 24-30. For more than four decades, National Crime Victims’ Rights Week has been geared toward confronting and removing barriers to achieving justice for victims of crime.

“It is an opportunity for the community to come together and commit to ensuring all victims are heard, validated and provided access to appropriate, trauma-informed resources,” said County Attorney Kent Volkmer.

PCAO is planning three events open to the public during NCVRW. The events will include safety messaging, recognition of crime victims and resources for victims and their families. They are family-friendly events and focus on victims who passed away, the dangers facing our children and the impact that DUI/DWI has on many families.

“Being a victim of crime can be frightening, confusing and even aggravating,” Volkmer said. “Taking the time to highlight and hold up our victims is both important and necessary.  It is my sincere hope that you can come and join us during at least one of these public events to show your support.”

In Arizona, victims of crime have many rights and are entitled to certain opportunities throughout the criminal justice process, including at court hearings. The Pinal County Attorney’s Office is committed to ensuring victims and their families are aware of the rights afforded to them.
