Last week, our Law Enforcement Coordinator Leah gave you an update on her travels during National Crime Victims' Rights Week, meeting with those who protect and serve, and building our support in communities across the state.
This week, I wanted to provide you a recap of our outreach and support of victims during NCVRW. Our survivor coalition is strong and represents many different areas of the state. We knew NCVRW would be a special time to highlight the hard work and empowering voices of victim services, advocates, and survivors. As well as renew our commitment to crime victims’ rights.
For two weeks, we did just that. It was a whirlwind.
It's been awhile since I've had the opportunity to have in person meetings with law enforcement officials, and boy have I missed it.
During National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, we wanted to honor a few Iowans with our “Guardian of Victims’ Rights Awards.”
Thank you Sheriff Van Renterghem, for your support of crime victims and Marsy's Law for Iowa.
