MEDIA ADVISORY: District Attorney’s Office to Host Fifth Annual National Crime Victims’ Rights Week Memorial

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.  – National Crime Victims’ Rights Week is a time to honor crime victims, the surviving families of homicide victims, and those who work directly to assist victims of crime. This year, National Crime Victims’ Rights Week will be observed April 8–14, 2018. This year’s theme, "Expand the Circle: Reach All Victims,” emphasizes the importance of inclusion in victim services and addresses:
