2023 Crime Victims Service Awards

Over the years, the Crime Victims Service Awards, which recognizes those who provide outstanding service to victims of crime, were presented during the annual Crime Victims’ Rights Conference.  This year, our office is announcing some exciting changes to the Crime Victims Service Awards.
