April 8th-14th, 2018 is National Crime Victims Awareness week. Please join me in taking a moment to think about all of the people who have been affected by crime.
This year’s theme Crime Victims Awareness theme is “Expand the Circle- Reach All Victims.” The goal is to make sure that every person who has been a victim of crime has access to services and support. We need to make sure that people who have been victims of crime have the tools they need to move forward with their lives.
Another focus is how professionals, organizations, and communities can all work together to help victims and prevent crime in the future.
Having spent years of my career fighting crime up close and personal, I’ve seen how it affects the citizens of Stearns County. As your Sheriff, I will fight tirelessly to get criminals off our streets and to keep our community safe.
