Join us for our 2019 National Crime Victims' Rights Week on April 11, 2019 at the Lake County Children's Advocacy Center from 3pm until 7pm. There is no cost to attend and the program will include presentations on protecting senior citizens from abuse and scams, identity theft/cyber safety consumer presentations and crating a common language: Youth Handbook for Success.

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.”
