Today kicks off National Victims’ Rights Week and the Door County District Attorney’s Office wants to remind residents of the resources available to them if they find themselves the victim of a crime.
Victim/Witness Assistance Program Coordinator Lisa Mraz says this year the county is concentrating on bringing attention to the crimes that most affect children.
Whether children witness or are victims of the violence, Mraz says they can act out with aggressive behaviors, continue being a victim, or even become an abuser themselves. Part of her job is making sure any victim of a crime exercises his or her rights to be heard in the court room.
One challenge victims have had to face more now so than ever is the ever-evolving use of technology.
The District Attorney’s Office has various resources for all crime victims. For more information call (920) 746-2388 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
