The Lake County State's Attorney's Office has received federal funding to promote community awareness of crime victims’ rights and services during 2019 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (April 7 – 13, 2019). First designated by President Ronald Reagan in 1981, National Crime Victims’ Rights Week increases general public awareness of, and knowledge about the wide range of rights and services available to people who have been victimized by crime. The theme for 2019 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week is “Honoring Our Past. Creating Hope for the Future.”
