Kitsap County Joins National Commemoration of Crime Victims’ Rights Week, April 2329, 2006

PORT ORCHARD, WA—During the week of April 2329, 2006, crime victims/survivors and those who serve them will join together to promote victims’ rights and services and to educate our communities about the devastating impact of crime. This event will be recognized by the Kitsap Board of County Commissioners at their regular meeting on April 24, 2006, through passage of a resolution commemorating the occasion. This year’s theme, “Victims’ Rights: Strength in Unity,” honors those crime victims and victim service providers who have joined together to ensure that all victims are aware of their rights and have access to the many services available to them.

Passage of the resolution was requested jointly by Kitsap County Prosecutor Russ Hauge, the YWCA, Mothers Against Drunk Drivers, the Kitsap Sexual Assault Center, Harrison Hospital’s Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner program, the Domestic Violence Task Force, Kitsap Special Assault Investigation and Victim Services, Families and Friends of Violent Crime Victims, the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office, the Port Orchard Police Department, the Bremerton Police Department, the Bainbridge Island Police Department, the Washington State Patrol, the Poulsbo Police Department, and the Suquamish Police Department.
